Hacking your way into tech

At some point, we all wanted to know how to hack into stuff. Hollywood also made this look super easy. Three clicks and the actor yells, “I’m in!” Don’t play with me mahn, I know it’s not that easy. 😆 Today I want to introduce you to Cybersecurity, one of the most in-demand tech fields. 

Cybersecurity is a field that deals with protecting computer systems, networks, and sensitive information from unauthorized access, theft, damage, or other malicious attacks. With the rise of technology and the increasing amount of data stored and transmitted electronically, cybersecurity has become a critical concern for individuals, organizations, and governments worldwide.

A Cybersecurity professional is responsible for securing software and networks during and after their development stages. They do this by monitoring, detecting, investigating, analyzing, and responding to risks, vulnerabilities, and threats (hackers or crackers). There are several career paths in Cybersecurity like;  Security Systems Administrator, Security Software Developer, Information Security Analyst, and everyone’s favorite, Ethical Hacker! 

Here are the top programming languages to learn if you want to get into cybersecurity: C, C++, Python, PHP, JavaScript, and SQL.
