The beginning of a new year is a great time to create and refine your personal and professional resolutions (even if you’ve already let one slip). And while you don’t have to wait to usher in a new year to refocus or set new goals, sometimes it’s the spark you need to bring you growth and success all year long.

Here at GTPE, we closely monitor the latest industry trends to ensure we bring you the best for your lifelong learning. One of the hottest tech trends we are most excited about this year is CYBERSECURITY.

The U.S. News and World Report rank information security analysis as second in its 10 best technology jobs for 2018. However, there is a dangerous shortage of qualified cybersecurity workers in the U.S. with a predicted global shortage of two million cybersecurity professionals by next year.

We've made it one of our resolutions to address this gap and help establish a highly skilled global cybersecurity workforce. We'll be offering boot camps, courses, and certificates to help educate you at every stage of your career. Or if you're ready to make the leap to an online master's degree in this field, let us know.

So, whether you're hoping to hack the cyber gap, or you're letting your curiosity point you in other new directions, we hope you find something you love with GTPE this year.
