Millions of people have their identities stolen each year due to the absence of Cyber Security Skills.
In April 2014, the NSA revealed one of the biggest vulnerabilities known to history called the Heartbleed Bug.
It affected the majority of websites out there.
Even large sites like Yahoo were compromised due to inadequate Cyber Security Skills.
According to officials in a U.S. Department of Defense statement, “Heartbleed undermines the encryption process on secure websites, email, instant messaging and likely a variety of other programs and applications, potentially putting users’ sensitive personal data — such as usernames, passwords, and credit card information — at risk of being intercepted by hackers.”
So that means even if you were proactive, hackers, in this case, could still access your information.
There are ways to combat this by centralizing your passwords and updating them frequently.
Of course, there are other ways to secure your identity as much as possible as well.
The reality of it all is that your information is not going to be 100% safe. But what you do online and depending on how you do it can cause you to easily open yourself up to security breaches.
Now, I want you to realize that none of this should prevent you from going about your business online.

What is cybersecurity, and why is it important? Ref goskills.com
Cyber Security Skills are all about managing the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information (known as the “CIA Triangle”) by protecting digital assets such as networks, applications, and databases against attackers.
Corporations regularly handle all sorts of sensitive data, such as personally identifiable information (PII), financial data, and trade secrets. Cybersecurity professionals are essential for protecting this data from increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. The means used to defend and attack assets are continually evolving. It’s up to cybersecurity talent to adapt to new technologies and potential attack vectors as the threat landscape evolves.
Why are Cyber Security Skills so high in demand?
Everyone has sensitive data
Every company interacts with some form of sensitive data in its day-to-day operations. Even non-tech companies need to collect basic human resources information on their employees. This personally identifiable information (PII) carries significant monetary value for identity theft and other harmful acts, making it a hot commodity in the “dark web” of the internet.
Companies are required to take proactive cybersecurity measures to meet data privacy compliance requirements. The two major players, Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), require that those with personal data in their custody take reasonable measures to keep that data safe.
Avoiding data breaches
According to research from IBM and the Ponemon Institute, the average total cost of a data breach is $3.92M. These costs include damage to the company’s reputation, support for the victims of the data breach, legal fines, and the resources required to investigate the cause of the breach.
There’s not only a high demand for cybersecurity professionals but there’s also a significant shortage.
