Should you learn programming in cyber security?

Should you learn programming in cyber security? Many people make the assumption that they certainly must know programming in technology jobs. As a result, that assumption can intimidate people from pursuing a cyber security career. Consequently we then have less people working to solve problems using technology.

The answer to the question of “Should you learn programming in cyber security?” however, might surprise you. For example, there are many jobs that DO NOT require programming knowledge. On the other hand there are jobs that rely solely on knowing programming languages. In other words the true answer is “it depends.”
