“Cyber security” used to mean protecting a computer with a log-in password. But with computer users around the world becoming increasingly connected, IT security specialists are now expected to be more than technology gurus. As Michael Chin, a graduate from Raffles Education Corp College (RECC) says, “It means having the ability to adapt to various situations and job scopes without getting tied down by a specialisation in a certain field.”
The 24-year-old came across RECC’s course during a career fair, and was impressed by the comprehensive range of certifications under its InfoComm Security course. The course offers Advanced Diplomas leading to Bachelor of Science with honours degrees in InfoComm Security, and incorporates the contents of industry-acclaimed qualifications such as MCP, MCSA, MCSE, Security+, and CEH, accredited by Microsoft, CompTIA and EC-Council. “These certifications, together with my academic qualifications, are internationally recognised, and raises my career prospects tremendously when I attend job interviews,” says Michael, who emerged from RECC with an Advanced Diploma in Infocomm Security.
