About the Program

Pearson’s Post Graduate Program in Ethical Hacking & Cybersecurity is a comprehensive credential designed to bring you to the cutting edge of cybersecurity across a wide range of applications and tools. It teaches industry relevant concepts and skills to protect data, information and hardware assets from cyberthreats in the form of ransomware, malware, phishing and data breaches.

It includes two cybersecurity projects which get students hands-on applying concepts in real-life cyber warfare situations.

The program also prepares learners for industry recognized professional certificates like Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). These are highly valued in the cybersecurity community and provide an edge to the learners over others in the job market.

Why Study Cybersecurity?

The Internet era has witnessed a host of new threats including phishing, ransomware, malware, data breaches and a disturbing string of cyber-attacks across blue chip corporations and government entities alike.

Billions of personal records are exposed and leaked each year, affecting an alarming percentage of the total world population. For corporations, the fallout includes lawsuits, loss of customer trust, and declining revenues. As wave after wave of high-profile cyber-attacks strike home, organizations around the world have no choice but to take cybersecurity more seriously than ever.

As threats continue to escalate, the cybersecurity talent shortage has become more and more severe. For every professional that gets trained, multiple new opportunities open up with leading corporations around the world, many of which lie unfilled waiting on the right candidate.

According to a report by BurningGlass, cybersecurity job postings have grown 94% since 2013, compared to only 30% for IT positions overall. In other words, Cybersecurity positions are growing three times faster than IT overall. This is a bright opportunity for people who are skilled in cybersecurity concepts and technologies.

Pearson’s Post Graduate Program in Ethical Hacking & Cybersecurity is taught by world leading cybersecurity experts to help professionals gain industry relevant cybersecurity expertise that they need to make the most of this career opportunity.
