What is cybersecurity and how does it impact our everyday lives?
It might be easier to say what it doesn’t impact. Cybersecurity is a necessary resource birthed from the rapid development of technology, whether it’s airport security cracking down on sensitive packaging or executive search firms making sure their sensitive data isn’t compromised. You could even say cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing industries today. Should you be considering a new career field, or just want to learn more about the benefits of good cybersecurity, the list below will explore these elements in further detail.
Technology is only growing faster from here. It’s all airport security and engineering design can do to keep up.
Businesses today have to do everything in their power to keep their heads above water. Why wouldn’t they? Not only do they have hundreds (sometimes thousands) of employees’ sensitive information and finances on the line, they also need to protect the integrity of their customers. An illuminating study found businesses without good alarm systems are nearly five times more likely to be burglarized than commercial locations with reliable electronic security in place. At least 20% of small businesses will be hacked or broken into within the first year, to boot.
No matter the business or company, good security means the difference between steady success and a sinking boat that never got the chance to sail. Airport security or HVAC recruiters, data needs to be carefully stored and the onset of viruses or malicious third parties needs to ever be kept at bay. Consider the rise of using robots in manufacturing plants, as well. Back in 2015 a record high of 14,000 robots (valued at $850 million) were ordered by North American robotics companies. This doesn’t even scratch the surface of IOT, also known as ‘the Internet of things’.
A good marketing manager should also be fluent in cybersecurity and how it can impact thousands of people. Public sector executive recruiters are the middleground between companies and employees. They help find the right people to do the right work for the right cost. If you’re someone who has an authoritative personality and some leadership experience under your belt, cybersecurity management might just be the calling you’ve been waiting to answer. A strong recruiting firm should be familiar not just with public resources, but the technology used to get there.
Perhaps packaging might be where you can really flex your muscles and show what you’re made of. When airport security and plasma treating solutions aren’t catching your eye, this sector can see you putting your analytical skills to the test. The world’s drug packaging industry rakes in $65 billion every year and, according to recent estimates, the flexible packaging field is the second largest packaging segment in the United States. The flexible packaging industry employs nearly 80,000 people in jobs ranging from blow molding to delivery. Cybersecurity recruiters might just need your careful eye and steady hand.
When you want a career field that moves fast enough to keep you on your toes and ensure you steady work, cybersecurity is the way to go. All you have to do is point and find yourself looking at an industry in dire need of more skilled specialists. Spending on electronic security products and services is growing at nearly 5% every year. Building controls alone have the technical potential to reduce American commercial building and lighting consumption by 5%. There’s a niche for just about everything and finding yours is a matter of research and time.
Ask less what cybersecurity can do and instead ask what it can’t do.
