Become an Information Security Expert
What is the biggest information technology trend of the 21st century? What do servers, sensitive customer data, company networks and the technologies of industry 4.0 have in common?
They are under constant attack by cyber criminals, viruses and malware and need to be protected around the clock. The security of information and the analysis and management of such risks are more important than ever.
