INTRODUCTION

In the modern digital era, where businesses experience constant and persistent attacks on their information technology infrastructure from malicious and criminal third parties, data security must be a vital part of any enterprise security strategy. The attachment of substantial financial consequences for security breaches and data loss by regulatory agencies only increases that urgency. Businesses are expected to take every security step possible to ensure the integrity of any and all collected, stored, and processed data.

In general terms, a cryptographer uses their expertise in mathematics and computer science to develop algorithms, ciphers, and other systems to encrypt, and thus protect, sensitive data. The cryptographer skillset combines aspects of computer science, applied mathematics, engineering, and application development. Finding individuals with the prerequisite skills can greatly complicate the recruitment and hiring process for many businesses.
