Cyber security can be for anyone, you don’t need to be a technical genius to get in! If you are into music, or have good eye-hand coordination (like video gamers) this could be the career for you! All you need is to be creative and be able to think outside the box to fix problems and innovate!
The key things are a continuing passion to learn and understand how technology works. Too many people think cyber security is all about hacking into or breaking things. Nope. Cyber security is all about learning how things work. The possibilities are endless you could go down a technical route and become a coding genius, but you might want to consider cultural change or project management, it all forms part on one team fighting against cyber criminals!

Whatever role you end up in you will need people skills, if you’re a techy you’ll need to be able to explain to the rest of the world what you do in simple terms. If you’ve gone down the non-technical route this will be even more important!
