CYBERSECURITY professionals shoulder the tremendous responsibility of ensuring that the cyberspace of organisations, and even countries, is safe.

Taylor’s University Faculty of Innovation and Technology School of Computer Science and Engineering lecturer Dr Kok Sim Hoong said cybersecurity graduates have the choice to work in any company or organisation that has an information and communications technology department.

“Wherever there is a sizeable use of computer system and devices, there is a need for a cybersecurity expert to support and protect it,” he said.
