In today’s wired society, everyone is preoccupied with sharing details about their lives on social media without considering the potential consequences of the images, addresses, and other information that could jeopardize their personal safety. Mark Zuckerberg has been under investigation for the past few months on how Facebook is using our data; when the CEO was questioned by the house of parliament, he was perplexed and unsure of what to say. In addition to this, a lot of hackers are breaking into banks, violating people’s privacy, and possibly stealing our money.
Spam, scams, and a host of other terms hit you as quickly as light through your email, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and most other forms of media. I receive several messages from people informing me that I have won money and asking for my bank account information on my WhatsApp, Twitter, and emails. If I were a simple person, I might have been duped and lost my money.
Many colleges have created cybersecurity curricula to aid future leaders in fending them off. The goal of our MSc in cybersecurity is to create the next generation of business leaders and to address the worldwide cybersecurity skills gap.

Since I’ve been meeting students for 15–16 years, I’ve discovered that the majority of them desire to study engineering and medicine. Students from the Middle East do not seek out IT, Computer Science, coding, data analysis, and other computer and internet-related programs in the number that are required today.
I encourage kids to apply for these degrees because I am confident that they will be a tremendous asset to the upcoming generation of businesses in this industry. Fintech is currently in vogue. And I don’t believe it’s a buzzword that will go out of style very soon.
