In this age of digital advancements, cybersecurity is more important than ever. 

As organisations continue to expand their digital presence, the demand for skilled cybersecurity professionals is on the rise. So, if you’ve been contemplating a career switch but are unsure how you would adjust to studying online, we’ve put together our top tips to help you succeed.

1. Choose the Right Learning Resources

Before you dive into signing up for the first qualification you stumble across online, think about your long-term goal. What type of cybersecurity career do you want, be specific as this will determine the type of qualification you will need to get.  For a successful career in cybersecurity, you do not need a university degree but you do need a course that is accredited properly, otherwise, organisations and businesses are likely to not recognise your qualification (more on that here).

2. Set Clear Goals

Once you’ve worked out what qualification you are aiming for and what company you would like to go with,  set clear goals on which days you are going to study and block out time. This will help you keep a routine and stay on track with your coursework. There will be a set timeframe for the course to be completed, so make sure you get all the necessary dates in your calendar.

3. Create a Dedicated Study Space

To study effectively from home, ensure you have a quiet, comfortable, and distraction-free area. A proper workspace will help you concentrate and make the most of your study time. Additionally, make sure you have a reliable internet connection so you don’t miss any live workshops or calls.

4. Stay Consistent and Engage with likeminded people

Remote learning requires a high degree of self-discipline and motivation. Consistency is key to retaining knowledge and making steady progress. However, this doesn’t have to be a lonely journey, use engage with other course members and reach out to your course leader, that’s what they’re there for.

Studying cyber security remotely is a viable option for individuals looking to enter this in-demand field, our advice would be to embrace the flexibility and convenience of remote learning with determination and dedication.
