It has always been difficult for me to get a concrete idea of a job. Especially in the changing world in which we live.
In the 21st century, the importance of transversal skills as meta-skills is becoming apparent. In other words, in the world of cybersecurity, a job may contain different skills needed to be effective in its practice. In cyber professions, whether technical or non-technical, learning how to learn becomes essential to adapt to a rapidly changing environment.
This demand for flexibility encourages observation, evaluation and analysis, while sharing with your peers resources, expertise and vision for protecting citizens’ data and their way of life.
Living in the 21st century disrupts traditional learning through continuous learning, but how to transform information into knowledge?
In this article I will try to answer the questions: What are the different areas of cybersecurity? What skills are needed to work in cybersecurity? What careers are there?
