As documented by Aakash Raymond Datt 

It is no longer a secret that one has to constantly keep in touch with the changing dynamics of the industry, especially if it is an IT-related field. I have been working around as a professional in cybersecurity for the past few years. To achieve new heights in my career, I pursued an advanced course in the same field, and Simplilearn just made it easy for me.

The Journey

After completing my BTech in Information Technology in 2019, I immediately joined Wipro as a security analyst. My key responsibilities were to monitor the company network and report any suspicious malware. I was responsible for keeping the company environment safe and disallowing unauthorized access. I always looked forward to an MTech degree in Information technology. After completing the advanced-level cyber security course with Simplilearn, my company promoted me. I wish to explore new avenues and live the dream of being a successful cybersecurity analyst.

The Challenge 

I sought an online advanced-level cyber security course. I was looking for a course that would clear the fundamentals of cybersecurity but would not divert me from my current work area. I researched a lot of online courses. However, there was no flexibility with the pace of learning. Also, the courses available were either beginner-level or advanced-level. So, it was tough to decide which course to enroll in.

Simplilearn Solution

I came across Simplilearn’s advanced-level course on cyber security. After going through its curriculum, I was sure this course offered just what I needed. I immediately enrolled in it. Simplilearn allowed me to learn independently and provided access to learning resources 24/7, thus offering flexibility.

It has improved my confidence. In the internal interview of the company, the interviewers were impressed with my knowledge, skill set and experience.

I will surely look for more courses with Simplilearn as it was a thrilling and fruitful experience.
