How to make money with Information Security, even without hacking

Some people might even disagree, but making money is fundamental to life, and making money with information security is possible, including legally.

When you start learning information security techniques, you will obviously learn how to protect technology environments, but at the same time, you will also learn how attacks are made.

It is also possible to say that an information security professional now has access to information and investigations that are often not public, for reasons such as competition and legal issues.

Your professional ethics must be considered at all times, but sometimes it makes you want to earn easy money.

Avoid temptation at all costs, as your professional life could be at risk. On the other hand, you can use your knowledge to make money legally.

You can offer your services and expertise to small and medium-sized companies, which also need information security, and often don’t have the money to pay for professional consultancy.

In this episode, I go into more detail on how you can make money with information security expertise.
