How to Learn
- Bootcamps to Get You Started
According to one estimate, there are more than five billion users of mobile devices in the world. For many, it is their primary way of working in and interacting with the digital world. As a result, mobile security has become increasingly important in mobile computing. Of particular concern is the security of personal and business information now stored on smartphones. A mobile security bootcamp teaches students the most common methods and tools hackers use to break into mobile devices and steal information. They will learn about encryption, firewalls, network protocols, authentication, and many other aspects of mobile security.
Those with an understanding of mobile security can pursue careers as data security analysts, systems security administrators, network security engineers, information systems security managers, and other fields related to cybersecurity. In 2018, information security analysts earned a median annual wage of $98,350, and employment in this field is projected to increase 32% by 2028. Network and computer systems administrators earned a median wage of $82,050 in 2018, and job growth is projected to be 5% over the next 10 years.
