About IT Security, Networks & Infrastructure

If you have an interest or desire to know how and why online services work from the software down to the circuit boards, then IT security, Networks and Infrastructure might be where you want your career-start.  Web and app hosting requires professionals with both network and hardware knowledge, providing the storage and security for all our online information, whether publicly available via websites and services or through company or government networks.  Meanwhile, broadband and telephone / communications engineers develop and maintain the physical infrastructure that pushes all this information along - the actual cables and wires and exchanges that support the country's wider communications network.  

IT infrastructure takes the applications and services designed by programmers and securely delivers them to the people and organisations who need them. Behind the glossy looking websites and modern offices full of connected employees, exists a huge support structure of telecommunications hardware and network software that connects all the applications and services together, with an equally large range of work opportunities that enable it.

You could build and install computers for use in business or in the home, or provide website or storage hosting services for people who want to have a presence on the Internet. You could maintain and backup huge databases of information or manage the accounts and security permissions for thousands of users who log in to a network for various services. Security is a big concern for the connected world and specialists in protecting corporate and personal information will be in more and more demand.

The options are many and varied, some of which you can learn about here!
