Cyber Security will be needed for years to come as long as people use computers. We use computers for everything these days, and your phones are also used as a computer to surf the web, pay bills, purchase things on the internet. Having a two-factor authentication for all of your devices helps everyone uses biometric authentication, facial recognition, pin, password, or fingerprint to unlock your devices. Of course, we use all these devices in public places. Many people do not have the security layers protecting their information from the people that may try to steal your information. Most of our devices have a global position system used to find the geolocation of any devices have the location ability turned on. Cyber Security did not mean that much to her starting the class because she did not know much about it. There are ways to secure your devices by configuring your device by disabling unused features, managing encryption, using strong authentication, and enabling loss or theft services on your mobile devices. The Cyber Security field is growing, and hackers are looking for more ways to steal information.

The more you learn throughout the years, the better you become in all that you do in your life. You have to be passionate about the field you want to go in because life is not always lovable. Unless you work for yourself, you will always have a boss to report to every day.
