Demand for cybersecurity skills massively outstripping supply

As hackers forge a booming job market, if you’re looking for a solid career path, consider cybersecurity.

Mounting pressure for better security has pushed up demand for experts, far outstripping the supply of such skills, according to The Wall Street Journal.

By 2022, there will be 265,000 more data-security jobs than skilled workers.

Compensation in the field has surged, with the median data-security analyst making around $121,000. U.S. firms who’ve battled hackers recently include Kmart, Delta and Panera.
