Why Should You Focus on Cybersecurity
The cybercrime epidemic is expected to cost $6 trillion by 2021. It is one of the biggest problems that affects nearly every organization world-wide. While this news may not be so great for organizations that must invest in combating a growing problem, it is great news for job seekers, especially veterans and dependents, that are thinking of switching careers, or needing a transportable, in-demand job.
Averarge salaries in the field are updwards of $90k annually!
There is a severe deficit in talent to fill current job openings in cybersecurity. In 2016 and 2017, the unemployment rate for cybersecurity professionals was zero, which is expected to continue through at least 2021, with predicted 3.5 million unfilled positions, globally. Average salaries in this field are upwards of $90k annually!
