CounterCraft is celebrating Cybersecurity Awareness Month hand in hand with the National Cybersecurity Alliance, and this week is Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week. Cybersecurity is one of the hottest sectors today, with new threats and challenges emerging each day.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job market for information security analysts will grow by 32 percent by 2028 – making it one of the fastest growing job sectors – while Cybersecurity Ventures has found that there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs in 2021. This means that cybersecurity professionals are among the most in-demand around the world and will be for years to come. Whether it’s students, veterans, or those seeking a career change, the dynamic field of cybersecurity is rapidly growing and has something for everyone.
