Information and Communication Technology Security—what is it?

Technology has become a big part in the day to day activities of everyone from the government, to businesses to private individuals. We share and store huge amounts of data, communicating and transacting with others. Cyber Security is becoming a pressing issue no longer limited to big institutions. Because of this, there is more reason now than ever before for people to invest in measures that keep them safe while interacting with this technology. This is where ICT Security specialists come in.

For International Students looking to explore this field, ICT Specialists are equipped with skills in network design, management, security and systems development that allow them to safeguard our information.

In recent years, there has also been a rise in more specializations like Cyber Security, which deals with the more criminal aspects. Protecting against things like data theft, malware attacks and unauthorized access are part of the key responsibilities, which makes it a very exciting area of interest.
