Security and data breaches are a growing concern globally. Believe it or not, more than 3.2 million records were compromised in the 10 biggest data breaches in the first half of 2020. The data could be anything ranging from Social Security numbers to your credit card details to something as personal as a medical record.
That’s why cybersecurity is top of mind for every company around the world. With the increasing number of data breaches — up 54% in 2019 — the role of a cybersecurity professional has become vital. In fact, the need for cybersecurity specialists has become so paramount, that according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the occupation is projected to grow at a much faster rate — more than 30% between 2018 and 2028 — than the average of all other occupations.
As demand for cybersecurity specialists reaches a fever pitch, Udacity is excited to announce the release of the all-new Introduction to Cybersecurity Nanodegree program — created in collaboration with SecurityScorecard — a great start for anyone interested in this critical field.
This program is extremely relevant for anyone working in tech right now given that current projections state the public cloud service market will reach over $600 billion by 2023, with Amazon owning over 30% of the current market.
