The way to success

Today they are familiar but between the middle of the 12th century and the beginning of the 13th century all of Europe began to be planted with these new educational institutions for the time. In Europe, during this time, many young Europeans began to go en masse to the incipient universities in search of a title that opened the way to success. As for the first university, despite giving priority to the University of Bologna, it is not known exactly which one was the first to be founded.

The search for professional success has not gone out of fashion and, today, we are still looking for the key to succeed in the workplace in a constantly changing landscape. In the cybersecurity sector, there is a complicated time, in which lack of talent leads to technical positions that are not covered. Among the different points of view on this topic today stands out the voice of Simon Wright, who has recently offered an interview in Infosecurity Magazine. Wright is director of operations at CareersinCybersecurity, a company that provides access to numerous sources for job seekers and recruiters. As far as talent is concerned, there is no better opinion than that of a talent collector.

Simon Wright has the opportunity to shed light on this issue as he has access to both sides of this conflict over employment. When asked about the most professionally desired by the next generation of professionals, Wright replies: "Due to the constantly evolving nature of cyber threats, it is essential for professionals in the field of cybersecurity and the fight against cybercrime to develop their Therefore, the new generation of professionals usually look for positions that allow them to keep up with these threats and continually improve their skills and work experience. "It is worth adding that currently the cybersecurity positions in the United Kingdom and the US are the most demanded and are considered a key position within the overall strategy of the entire company.

But, as in every conflict, this situation is a matter of two. This is what Wright says about what job seekers are looking for when filling a vacancy for cybersecurity: "Recruiters not only look for technical skills, but also complete candidates with other softer skills, such as team collaboration, research and writing. Candidates must also have a passion for learning as work is changing and evolving so rapidly within the industry. "One concept to reduce the deficit is the cross training of individuals from other business areas, so professionals with certain Experience in areas such as communication, recovery planning and incident response could be suitable for a career in cybersecurity.

Despite having clear what the two parties intend to achieve with this agreement, there are still difficult skills to find in the IT professionals that apply to these vacancies. Wirght says: "The common skills required for cybersecurity roles, and which are not always included in candidates' curricula, are incident management and response, auditing and compliance, firewall skills, intrusion detection, analysis and intelligence, management SIEM, access and identity management, security development application, advanced prevention of malware and cloud computing among others. "But as has already been pointed out before, recruiters do not only look for technical skills, so professionals who want to opt for Vacancies must show that they are people with good communication skills and other soft skills required within the business.

As a couple of centuries ago with the birth of universities, today a new change is taking place in the field of professional preparation. Every time there are more requirements to occupy a position in the field of cybersecurity, a multidisciplinary profile is what any job seeker dreams of. In the same way that in the twelfth century a university degree opened many doors, now a range of capabilities can take you to the top of cybersecurity.
