Cybersecurity Career Growth in Brazil

The need for cybersecurity professionals around the world continues to grow at a high rate, with a projected global gap of 3.5 million professionals by 2021 according to Cybersecurity Ventures. Career opportunities for Brazilian Citizens will be significant.

Brazil currently ranks 70th in the ITU’s cybersecurity index, and is the second nation most affected by global ransomware attacks. In 2018 alone, the country faced approximately U$20 billion in economic losses due to malicious cyber-attacks.

The National Policy on Information Security created the national cybersecurity strategy. Elaborated by the GSI, the National Policy on Information Security prescribed the establishment of a Strategy on Information Security to be published in issue-area modules, namely: (i) cybersecurity; (ii) cyber defense; (iii) critical infrastructure protection; (iv) security of classified information; and (v) protection against data leaks. They will be followed by the development of national plans to guide the implementation of the strategic goals and objectives outlined in the respective strategies:

  1. Digital security and prosperity
  2. Increase Brazil’s resilience to cyber threats
  3. Brazil’s role in international cybersecurity.

The Brazilian cyber security market is expected to grow from $2.61 billion in 2013 to $7.29 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 17.80% for the period 2013 to 2019. This clearly indicates the growth potential of the Brazilian cyber security market in the years to come.

As a trusted partner and accredited certification body, EC-Council provides training ranging from foundational to master status.

How we do what we do?

We put people at the core of cybersecurity

More than 18 years ago, EC-Council established the standards for Ethical Hacking, with the core belief that people were central to the world’s cybersafety. This remains true today. From this initial certification, we have continued to build the training and certifications needed to protect citizens, organizations and nation-states.

Security and Safety starts with PEOPLE

As more Brazilian businesses shift to the cloud, so do attackers. Cloud infrastructure may be highly secure, but the people who use it are often vulnerable to attacks. That’s why today’s cybercriminals exploit human nature as much or more than technical vulnerabilities. As a result, businesses need a multipronged, people-centric cybersecurity strategy.
