4 new Cyber Security certifications in 2015


By Tobin Chapman


It is more important than ever for you to protect your company against cyber-attacks. According to a recent government survey, cyber-crime costs UK businesses a reported £27 billion a year

Each individual breach can cost large businesses as much as £1.15 million on average. A huge stigma exists around cyber fraud due to the damage it can have to a company’s reputation. This has meant that as much as 85% of fraud and cyber-crime goes unreported.

Demand for cyber security skills is going up as businesses are increasingly recognising the need to protect their assets. To meet this demand, we’ve seen a series of new cyber security courses launched in 2015. 

There have been new courses from established security vendors as well as existing vendors entering the market for the first time.

Earning a high level Cyber security certification can net you a career earning as much as £82,500, according to ITJobsWatch. The release of these new certifications will help you develop the skills you need to protect your business from a cyber-attack.

Completing the course and achieving the qualification allows you to make he most of RESILIA whilst demonstrating you have the skills to do so. RESILIA is AXELOS’ first cyber security certification.
