For many years, cybersecurity has been a key pillar of the technological industry.

We are referring to devices that allow us to interconnect them via data networks.

👉 These devices are mainly as mentioned below:

  • Computers (desktops, laptops)
  • Tablets
  • Smartphones
  • Industrial systems

Recent years have seen cybersecurity in home and business environments being affected more by various types of attacks.

Ransomware attacks are what are making the most impact. These attacks allow attackers to steal information from infected systems and demand ransom.

This has shown our weakness in the security of our computing devices.

â–¸It also highlighted the ignorance and lack of awareness of users in this area.

â–¸This is due in large part to the COVID-19 pandemic that has affected the world.

â–¸Many companies have since started to use teleworking with their employees.

â–¸Many times, these companies weren't ready to make the change in such a short amount of time.

â–¸This means that security is not sufficient to meet the requirements for teleworking in terms of technology and employee training.

â–¸We can now conclude that cybersecurity in telework is not correct or poorly implemented.

â–¸This has not only affected large multinational corporations. Smaller companies have had to reinvent themselves to make use of remote connections and offer services via the Internet.

â–¸Many of these companies lack the technical resources to implement expensive security systems.

â–¸This is where training and awareness are required for all employees who use the devices and systems of the company. This is primarily to avoid being swindled or exploited by social engineers.

Importance of Cybersecurity

As you can see, cybersecurity is an important topic.

The way we communicate and work today is heavily influenced by networked devices.

We are connected to the Internet and the corporate network constantly in the enterprise. We communicate with each other via internal messaging systems. We can share files with colleagues, send and get e-mails, and we also exchange files.

â–¸Our private lives are connected to the internet and are exposed to more information than we realize. We can connect to the internet by simply turning on our smartphones.

â–¸There are usually multiple applications that can be used on our smartphones. These applications can be anything from an instant messaging system to managing bank accounts.

â–¸Poor cybersecurity awareness can cause us to download unwanted applications and browse them insecurely. These mistakes can lead to the exposure of our device and all information stored on it.

We can summarize that cybersecurity must be part of our daily "digital lives". We can protect ourselves and our information from possible scams and attacks by giving cybersecurity the attention it deserves.

Why do We Need Training?

Not only is the future in sight, but so is the current state of cybersecurity. According to all studies, there is a high demand for the jobs that need to be filled.

Not only is it important to look at the profiles of security professionals, but also those who are fully dedicated to cybersecurity and who work on the detection and prevention of cybersecurity problems.

Anyone who uses technology and Internet services such as email, web browsing, social networks, or ...). should be trained in cybersecurity.

Although it isn't dedicated to cybersecurity on an everyday basis, this group is still very important. Why? Because it is the majority.

Everybody who uses Internet services is exposed. It is also a human factor that makes mistakes. This is why professionals in this industry must have the goal of making employees and people aware of the proper use of technology.

Cybersecurity Profiles

We will be focusing on cybersecurity-related professionals. There are many...

This allows us to identify profiles that represent different types of typologies. Specialists in cybersecurity management and coordination, as well as specialists in technical areas like security audits.


CSO is the profile that has the greatest responsibility within the organization. This responsibility falls under the cybersecurity team.

Network Team

These teams include people who aim to become hackers to conduct penetration tests. These are also called audits or penetration tests. It simulates real attacks to test infrastructure, software, or systems. Any asset in the organization can be compromised.

They are responsible for offensive security, which could be summarized as follows:

Blue Team

These people are responsible for defensive security. They are responsible for protecting infrastructure, software, systems, and other assets.

They are responsible for monitoring and improving the security of any company assets that might be compromised or vulnerable to attack.

Digital Forensics

This group includes profiles that are dedicated to the digital investigation. People who are experts in forensic analysis can analyze the systems affected and explain if there is a security breach.

These analyses can be used to determine the cause of an incident and its severity. These analyses are also used by security teams to address any breaches.

Official Studies

After we have established the foundations for our cybersecurity journey, we can choose to pursue official degrees and studies that will allow us to keep learning and growing our knowledge.

Postgraduate Studies

After completing university studies, many universities offer postgraduate master's degrees. The years of experience gained through university studies will enable those who choose to pursue it to become cybersecurity specialists.

Cybersecurity Training Cycle

Vocational training is a pathway that can be followed to study cybersecurity. This also has its cycle. This is a higher-grade cycle.
These cycles are completed in officially accredited centers. Upon completion, you will be awarded a degree.


All teachers need certificates to show their level of proficiency.

Official certifications are awarded to those who have obtained qualifications that are recognized at an international level.

After passing an exam, you can obtain this certification. These exams are based on content that has been created by organizations. They focus on particular aspects of cybersecurity (ethical hackers, forensics, etc.)

We can locate the following organizations that offer this type of certification:

EC-Council (CEH, CHFI, ...).
Offensive Security (OSCP/OSCE, ...))
