Is Cyber Security Programming hard to learn?
As with any discipline, how challenging a subject is depends on the individual, and cyber security programming is no different. In many ways, learning cyber security programming is like learning other types of programming. A good way of thinking about learning cyber security programming is to compare it to learning a foreign language; you have to learn the rules and logic of a programming language much like you would have to learn the grammatical rules of a different spoken language.
Is Cyber Security Programming a good career?
Cyber security programming can be an great option for those who have an interest in pursuing a career in the security and information technology fields. Additionally, the Bureau of Labor Statistics notes that the field where which cyber security programming professionals work is also expected to grow by 33%, on a national level, between 2020 and 2030, which is much faster than the average for all industries in the United States7. Enrolling in a degree or certificate program, like DeVry’s Undergraduate Certificate in Cyber Security, can help you build up your foundational skills if you’re preparing to pursue a career in cyber security programming.
