    Frequently Asked Questions

    I don’t have any experience—can I really start a career in cybersecurity?

    Yes, you can start a career in cybersecurity even if you don’t have any prior experience. In fact, according to a study by (ISC)², 57% of cybersecurity professionals in the U.S. entered the field without prior experience in the industry. As Vasu Jakkal (Corporate Vice President of Security, Compliance, and Identity at Microsoft) has rightly said, “Cybersecurity needs you.” With the right training and education, you can gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in this field.

    Being a Non-IT professional, can I find a job in cybersecurity?

    Yes, non-IT professionals can find a job in cybersecurity. According to recent industry reports, there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally by 2025. Many organizations are looking for individuals with diverse backgrounds, including those with non-IT experience, to fill these roles.

    Do I need to know coding to become a cybersecurity professional?

    No, you do not need to know coding to become a cybersecurity professional. According to a recent study by (ISC)², only 20% of cybersecurity professionals listed coding as a necessary skill in their job. However, it is beneficial to have some knowledge of programming languages, as it can enhance your ability to understand and analyze malicious code.

    How quickly can I transition from IT professional to cybersecurity?

    The transition from IT to cybersecurity can vary depending on your current skills and experience as well as the specific role into which you are looking to transition. It is important to note that cybersecurity roles often require specialized knowledge and certifications, such as a C|EH or C|CT. Therefore, start by researching and gaining knowledge in the specific areas of cybersecurity you are interested in, and then pursue relevant certifications. Additionally, gaining hands-on experience through internships or entry-level cybersecurity positions can help speed up the transition process.

    Do cybersecurity professionals get paid more than IT professionals?

    Without a doubt, cybersecurity professionals typically earn higher salaries than IT professionals. A recent Burning Glass report states a 300% increase in demand for cybersecurity job postings compared to the overall IT job market. According to IBM, cybersecurity jobs also pay 16% — or about $13,000 — more than the average for all IT jobs. The average advertised salary for a cybersecurity job is now $93,540.

    What are the primary skills I need to learn to pursue a cybersecurity career?

    To join a cybersecurity job, the primary skills one should focus on learning include the following:
    • Network security and administration
    • Risk management and compliance
    • Cybersecurity policies and procedures
    • Cyber crime investigation and forensic analysis
    • Information security management
