Re: Cyber security
@Dr.T: Respectfully, I very much disagree.  The "shortage" of cybersecurity people is a mostly false one.  The real problem is age discrimination and companies not wanting to pay IT people what they're worth.

Instead, what a lot of companies do is offer salary packages that are far below market rate and then whine to the government that there's a shortage so that they can get H1-B and L-1 Visas approved for cheap overseas labor to be brought in.  Then they lay off their existing workforce (but not before having the people they're laying off train their replacements).

Rinse and repeat.

Cyber security
I agree, we are in shortage of Cyber security staff, this was not the case not long ago. These recent attacks scared people quite well.

" fancy GUIs we have now"

Another good point. Even Linux is more GUI then not anymore. Things become easier of course.

"Even without a specific focus on cybersecurity, learning to code is good for general "

I agree. Coding provides more insight into security of the systems, they get better understanding what might be the problem.

Learn to code
 

Learn to code becomes popular among younger generation simply because we figured out to make it very simple to code and most people would like to build something and interact with it.

Even without a specific focus on cybersecurity, learning to code is good for general cybersecurity awareness because it compels people to know more about what's going on with their machines -- as opposed to simply blindly going along for the ride with all the fancy GUIs we have now.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
