There are five domains covered on the exam.

Because cybersecurity is in such high demand, choosing it as a career promises a bright future. The Swiss and European job markets reflect the demand seen globally for cybersecurity professionals. The statistics project the industry to grow 33% through 2030 — that’s 25% higher than the 7.7% growth rate across all industries.

As you plan your career in cybersecurity, you may be surprised to learn you don’t need an IT background or degree to work in the field. In fact, more than half of current cybersecurity professionals got their start outside of IT, transitioning from unrelated career fields, gaining access through cybersecurity education, and exploring cybersecurity concepts on their own.

What isn’t surprising — cybersecurity professionals say credentials like the Certified in Cybersecurity certification are the most important way for career pursuers to break into the field.
