"Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace."

-U.S. Department of Homeland Security

"Did you know that cybersecurity professionals report an average salary of $116,000? That's nearly three times the national average. The demand for cybersecurity experts is growing 12 times faster than the current U.S. job market, making cybersecurity one of the most highly sought-after careers in the country".

-National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies.

Who Can Take Our Course?

Anyone looking for a stable and successful career may want to consider the cybersecurity industry. According to the Cybersecurity Jobs Report, there will be approximately 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2022; against that backdrop, global cybercrime is expected to climb to 6 trillion annually that same year. According to Forbes, entry-level cybersecurity positions' annual salary starts as high as $85,000.

Cybersecurity is now a global priority as cybercrime and digital threats grow in frequency and complexity. However, one of the major setbacks preventing a handle on cybercrime is the cybersecurity workforce shortage and lack of new professionals funneling into this industry.

As you can imagine, the cybersecurity industry is turning to businesses and higher education institutions to educate and prepare the next generation of cyber professionals. Currently, this industry's unemployment rate stands at 0%, where it has been for the past eight years and is expected to remain there for the next several years.

The biggest issue that industries and organizations of all sizes and types, ranging from Fortune 500 and Global 2000 corporations to small-to-midsize businesses, governments, and schools globally, is scrambling to hire qualified cybersecurity professionals. Do not take our word for it; go to any job search engines like Glassdoor, Indeed, Ziprecruiter, and so on and type in "cyber" in the job search and see the results for yourself.
