Machine learning. Autonomous response. There's never a dull moment in cyber security. Pick your side in the digital arms race.
We all live in a connected world, from internet banking to government infrastructure, and thus, network protection is no longer an optional extra. Cyber-attacks are now an international concern, as high-profile breaches have given many concerns that hacks and other security attacks could endanger the global economy.
According to Risk Based Security, there were eight massive data breaches in the first half of 2019, which accounted for the compromise of 3.2 billion records, with three of these eight data breaches being the largest breaches of all time. The monetary threat of cybercrime to businesses is rising fast, according to one estimate by Germany Trade and Invest, it costs the German economy €55bn per year. A recent report by German digital industry association Bitkom says cyberattacks have affected 47% of Germany’s manufacturing companies - a study by insurance company Hiscox reveals the highest cost for a single incident amounted to €5m.
The need for security experts across all sizes of businesses, both big and small, make it an ideal time to be employed in the cyber security industry in Germany. In the first six months following the introduction of new GDPR laws in Europe, more than 59,000 data breaches were reported across Europe. The Netherlands, Germany and the UK topped the list of the most reported breaches according to law firm DLA Piper. The variety, growth opportunities, and increasing importance of cyber security make it an exciting and ever evolving career to be involved in.
