"Cybersecurity Ventures’ predicts that there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally by 2021, up from one million positions in 2014."

(2019/2020 Official Annual Cybersecurity Jobs Report sponsored by Herjavec Group.)

Public Key Infrastructure is a security ecosystem that has stood the test of time for achieving secure Internet-based transactions by the use of digital certificates.

Digital certificates have provided security to servers and routers from the very early stages of the Internet through Public Key Infrastructure; it does away with the need for password policies, tokens or other ineffective methods by using direct communication for authentication of systems.

PKI involves software, hardware, procedures, and policies to provide a core service for secure communications through authentication, encryption, and data integrity.
