For the most part, cybersecurity is its own specialty within computer science, networking, data management, and information technology fields.
But to always consider cybersecurity activities in isolation misses the point of the role that cybersecurity practitioners play within critical industries such as healthcare, finance, insurance, and even fields like environmental protection.
So how does cybersecurity fit into the bigger picture, or the broader economy?
In order to answer that question and get a better understanding of some of the unique challenges faced by cybersecurity workers in various critical fields, we put together these in-depth industry profiles.
Each profile is designed to provide an overview of the industry and the specific cybersecurity challenges within that field.
In addition to the background, each industry profile also provides a more in-depth case study of the importance and role of cybersecurity in the industry as well as a section outlining resources to learn more.
