For this article we will briefly address the topic of career in information security, this content was directed to those who are interested in following in this area.

The CyberSecurity market has been growing exponentially. Currently, the company that does not care about security becomes vulnerable and susceptible to attacks.

In Brazil and in the world, this topic is among the main concerns of business leaders, with the constant evolution of technology and improvement by hackers / people with bad intentions, on the other hand, we have the need to obtain services and professionals dedicated to the correction and resolution of these problems, who present the necessary qualifications for the specific position required.

Millions of cybersecurity job openings are open — and women can fill them too. But the big question arises “we have a good amount of vacancies, but do we have qualified professionals in the market to serve them?” “What would be the essential knowledge and skills to enter?”

Unlike the time of our grandparents, nowadays it is much easier to have access to books, courses and content on various topics through the digital age. It is even possible to carry out a college/graduate course at a distance.

But with the constant evolution, if we don't keep ourselves well informed, unfortunately having only high school and graduation in the area is not enough. A certification, a course for example, becomes a differential during the selection process. Dedicating ourselves to communication, proactivity, teamwork, working with changes, dealing with conflicts, aiming at improving our performance, recognizing our weaknesses and identifying points for improvement… already initially makes us good candidates.

It is important for you to understand which branch within information security you want to follow, whether for a more procedural area of governance, or a more technical area. There are always several opportunities and paths you can take, you will have certifications, courses, specific skills that will also be required in each of these guidelines.

It is important that you read, understand and research more about what you want and focus on continuous learning and development about your chosen segment. But remember, always be willing to learn, as the area is constantly changing, as are technologies, systems and standards.
