PHP Security Micro Degree

The world is still an unsecure place. Organizations are constantly being compromised with all sorts of attacks. The rapid rate of technology adoption by organizations that do not have a clear understanding of their cyber risks makes it even more challenging for them to remain secure. The shortage of qualified cyber skills across the globe make matters worse. While certain industry certifications do a decent job in developing the broad skillset of cyber professionals, we need to develop the micro skills of cyber professionals fast.
