Career Guide

With geographical boundaries getting blurred, access to information is, but a mouse click away. Unauthorized access to information and misuse of confidential data can lead financial loss through industrial espionage, e-mail fraud, bankruptcy, loss of reputation, identity theft and a host of other issues.

In today’s globally networked environment, we are wide open to security threats. A computer security breach is no longer a question of how, but when?

Without doubt, the requirement for information security management and better governance, risk & compliance management continues to grow by the day.

Despite adequate experience, your resume needs something quantifiable and verifiable to show employers you have the expertise they need.

Positions in many large corporations worldwide require relevant certifications, and professionals with the right credentials have a higher earning potential and better career opportunities.

Individual area of interest varies from person to person. Acquiring the right certifications would go a long way in validating your knowledge and giving individual credibility.  More important, it makes a statement about who you are and how serious you are about your career.

It is important to note that each certification comes at considerable cost and care should be taken to decide which certification/s would add value to your chosen line.
