Interested in a career in cybersecurity? Now is the time to act! A study (https://iamcybersafe.org/research_millennials/) by the Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS) projects that by 2022 the shortage of information security professionals will reach 1.8 million. Today, thousands of cybersecurity jobs are going unfilled.
The challenge to filling these jobs is that most employers require not only academic degrees, technical skills, and professional certifications but also years of experience. There is also a substantial talent pool that possesses some of the required skills and education but lack the real world experience demanded by potential employers. Short of time travel, the only way to fill this gap is through career development and mentorship which will better position our members to fill jobs in both the government and commercial sectors.
