academics Cyber Security University Diploma - Information and intelligence

According to a Gartner study, half of the world's companies will need to use professional services to manage IT risk. The explosion in the number of connected objects within the company (BYOD) is highlighting a large number of security flaws, in addition to a growing number of cyber-attacks on corporate or even private IS. The implementation of the RGPD (European Data Protection Regulation), by obliging companies to secure their data, will also lead to an even greater demand for security experts.
