Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting information, systems, networks, and programs from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. Along with the convenience of today's digital world comes vulnerability. Institutions in every industry need employees at every level who understand the technical, legal, and business aspects of cybersecurity risk management.
Despite the demand, 40,000 information security analyst jobs go unfilled. The cybersecurity data tool CyberSeek states that employers annually struggle to fill another 200,000 jobs related to cybersecurity. The nonprofit security advocacy group Information Systems Audit and Control Association predicts a global shortage of two million cybersecurity professionals by 2019.
