Cybersecurity has to evolve quickly to keep up with the most sophisticated breaches.

One of the hottest areas for jobs in the tech sector at the moment is cybersecurity, with new hacks, breaches and security problems cropping up almost every day.

At Career Zoo, we spoke to Pat Moran, cybersecurity partner at PwC, about some of the biggest trends in the industry.

“Ransomware is one, where emails come in and lock down your files and you can’t access them anymore without paying some financial penalties,” said Moran.

“The other area is the fraudulent email – the email that comes in … that says we’ve won a prize and click on the attachment to find out what the prize is.”
