Due to the Covid-19 impact the number of internet users has increased drastically, yes the internet gives us a great number of advantages but along with that, It gives us a lot of risks also. To protect individuals and institutions from these risks we need cyber security aka ethical hacking. 

Even if you are interested to start your career in cyber security some questions are revolving in our heads, such as; 

  ● Is there a career opportunity in hacking?

   ● Is there a career opportunity in hacking? 

Cyber security is a large industry that is valued at 153.16 Billion in 2020 globally. In India, the cyber security industry is valued at 9.85 Billion in 2021. As it is a very large industry the career opportunities are enormous.
