Course Cybersecurity Junior Expert | CYBERSECURITY & CLOUD duration Part-time
According to the latest global report on Cybersecurity released by Accenture, the average annualized cost of cyber crime is causing to international organizations a loss of US$11.7 million. Moreover, due to an increase of cyber attacks, successful breaches per company each year has risen more than 27 percent, from an average of 102 to 130. Ransomware attacks alone have doubled in frequency, from 13 percent to 27 percent.
Nevertheless, while the risks related to cyber attacks set new records, the number of professionals specialised in preventing and countering them is not sufficient to guarantee that the demand for cybersecurity experts is fully covered.
Therefore, in this threat landscape, organizations try to bridge this gap by reexamining their investment priorities in order to control these more sophisticated and highly motivated attacks and hiring Cybersecurity professional able to detect and prevent promptly data breach.
