Beyond well-paying salaries, excellent benefits and a seemingly endless offering of employers and job openings, the growing field of cybersecurity offers intrinsic benefits as well. Cybersecurity professionals work to secure the world’s highly sensitive data, and that effort is often interesting, challenging and meaningful.
While working in technology can make it difficult to determine the impact of your work, cybersecurity’s impact cannot be understated. We all live some facet of our lives online, and attacks are only growing more frequent and far-reaching as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow. From safeguarding top-secret government information to warding off online attacks that could paralyze an organization, we all rely on cybersecurity professionals to help keep our personal information safe and prevent hackers from accessing our sensitive information that is stored online.
Opportunities for Growth
With an anticipated global shortfall of 3.5 million cybersecurity jobs by 2021, the demand for cybersecurity professionals is increasing at more than three times the pace of the rest of the IT job market and 12 times faster than the general job market. Consequently, it’s safe to say that if you choose cybersecurity, there will be a significant amount of career opportunities for many years to come.
Additionally, cybersecurity is an ever-evolving industry where threats and solutions are constantly changing. As such, cybersecurity employees need to understand as much about how about how technologies, threats, and organizations work as possible. While developing that understanding offers a massive opportunity to stay engaged and challenged, the possibilities for personal and career growth in the cybersecurity industry are almost endless.
