A cryptographer is a person who creates the encryption code required for data safety. Computer-encrypted data is secured with extremely complex, lengthy, and time-consuming encryption techniques that are nearly impossible to crack.

  Although cryptography is often regarded as a new career in the digital age, it’s not that different from other areas of science. For instance, mathematicians have been using math to secure communication since the very beginning of time. Computer science and mathematics are used by cryptologists to create secure cyphers, which are used to encrypt data.

  Cryptography is one of the most important tools for building secure digital systems. Cryptographers play a big role in building these systems. This makes them some of the most well paid and highly valued workers within the booming world of cybersecurity.

  A career as a cryptographer can be challenging and rewarding, both intellectually and....
