What are cyber attacks?
There are four main types of cyber attacks:
- Organized crime rings, attempting to steal something of value from a company or individual.
- Nation-state actors, organizations that are motivated to make a change that sways an issue to their favor.
- Hackers or hacktivists, trying to make radical political statements or get attention from political institutions.
- Trusted individuals within a company who have access to top secret information and can access the company’s internal communications easily.
All of these are potential attacks happen unannounced. With cyber security training, you’ll be able to protect a company against malicious attacks like these.
What is the ROI on hiring a certified ethical hacker?
With cyber security awareness on the rise, corporations are spending money to proactively hack their internal systems to search for vulnerabilities before a real hacker can penetrate their network. A breach of security can deplete a company’s resources or steal information that is not public knowledge. These attacks can cause great financial distress. According to the Ponemon Institute, “the average price for small businesses to clean up after their businesses have been hacked stands at $690,000; and, for middle market companies, it’s over $1 million.” In fact, 60% of small companies that suffer a cyber attack are out of business within six months. Because of this, cyber security certifications are in high demand.
A certified ethical hacker is an investment for a company who has assets they don’t want to have exposed. The cost is minimal compared to the loss that could happen if hacked. When a company is looking to hire an ethical hacker, they want to get a qualified candidate as quickly as possible. By looking only at certified candidates, they save themselves time and money. Often, companies are looking for somebody with experience in both information systems and cyber security.
But ethical hacker certification isn’t just lucrative for companies. In 2014, there were 82,900 jobs posted for ethical hackers, almost 3 postings for every qualified applicant. In 2016, the median pay for an ethical hacker was $92,600 annually or $44.52 per hour! Ethical hacking is predicted to be one of the top IT job roles employers are seeking to fill in 2017. And this industry isn’t going away anytime soon. Employment of information security analysts is projected to grow 18 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
