We must be future ready

As Bangladesh looks to progress as an economy, investing in the right skills for the future generation, and being proactive with regard to future jobs will be extremely important. 

Moreover, with the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Bangladesh must be mindful of the plethora of jobs that will be lost, and as such, to have a healthy workforce, and to keep up with the rest of the world, there is no alternative but to invest in skills for the future. 

For example, a career in cyber security will only gain more and more prominence in the future. Additionally, the fact that experts claim that a computer science degree will not be necessary, and that new entrants can do so with just a year of experience, should provide encouragement to the youth, and any potential individuals who want to enter this field. 

In recent times, we have seen how vulnerable Bangladesh is to cyber threats, and as such, to have a robust and engaged workforce in this field is not just a viable and lucrative career, but would be an asset to the country as a whole. 

Bangladesh is looking to hit several economic landmarks over the next two decades, such as fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals, becoming a middle-income economy, and ultimately, becoming an equitable and developed nation. If we are to be successful in fulfilling all these ambitions, then we must be future ready, while simultaneously protecting ourselves from the growing threat of cybercrimes.
