Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace.As we become more reliant on modern technology, we also become more vulnerable to cyber attacks. With the growing volume and sophistication of cyber attacks, ongoing attention is required to protect sensitive business and personal information, as well as safeguard national security. Cyber attacks and digital spying are the top threat to national security, eclipsing terrorism.

A cyber security professional must be creative. Some problems cannot be solved right away. There might be a deviation from the usual scenario. Cyber security professionals have to work together. Some problems just cannot be solved by one individual. As the saying goes, "Two heads are better than one." Finally cyber security professionals must be willing enough to lead others. It is important to have leadership abilities to help others.
