The Importance of Personal Development in IT Security Jobs

With the rise of cloud computing and a growing global remote workforce, IT security and IT security jobs have never been more important. There are expected to be 255 million remote workers by 2030, according to experts. For organisations, this means deploying cloud-based services and dealing with more connected devices than ever before. In order to manage the network safely, having the right security team will be key.

IT professionals with advanced skills in cloud or networking security will be in demand as cloud adoption ramps up. If you’re a computing graduate looking for personal development courses in this subject, a master’s degree could be a great platform for growth.

Why study a postgraduate degree?
The MSc Cloud and Network Security course at the University of Bolton is designed for graduates with a background in networking, system administration or cloud computing, who are looking to advance their skills and enjoy personal development in their career or IT security job.

Not only will you get the chance to improve your knowledge and find better job opportunities, but you can boost your earning potential too. In fact, statistics from the Department for Education suggest that postgraduates under the age of 30 earn on average £4,500 more than those with an undergraduate degree.
