Working in cyber security involves a lot of psychology – understanding why people behave as they do in certain situations – as well as building systems and software that can protect individuals from risk and block cyber criminals from achieving their goals. You could be involved in developing an approach to tackling cyber threats or building cyber protection into new products and services.
Any sector or organisation that uses technology needs cyber security strategies to protect them from cyber criminals. These criminals can either be individual hackers or organised crime organisations. Both continuously find new ways to steal customer information, business data, and money by accessing online accounts and interrupting transactions.
