2017 has been a very busy year for cybersecurity professionals. It seems weekly, if not daily, news breaks of a new data breach or intrusion of critical systems. Among others, WannaCry, Petya, NotPetya and Brickerbot malware has been introduced from multiple threat actors across multiple global sectors. While emerging threats have companies and governments scrambling around the globe, it provides significant opportunities for cybersecurity professionals seeking to apply their skills in defense of targeted systems.
Estimates vary when analyzing costs associated with data breaches, but most security leaders agree on two points: the frequency of cyber attacks are increasing, and the attacks are becoming more sophisticated. With the increase in sophisticated attacks comes the greater need for a talented workforce armed to counter the associated threats. Growing threats and a rapidly changing set of security requirements has led to a shortage of cybersecurity professionals. According to cyber non-profit ISACA, the skills gap will result in a shortage of two million security professionals by 2019. Cybersecurity careers are not limited to IT companies or professional service firms, but transcend across the many private and public sector industries most often targeted by cyber criminals, including healthcare, financial, retail, transportation and government. October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and now is a great time to pursue education and certification credentials to help fill the skills gap. Here’s a look at a few of the positions that will see explosive growth:
The above list is certainly not exhaustive, nor do the titles or descriptions fit in nice little boxes. Like the cybersecurity landscape overall, professional cybersecurity positions are ever-evolving. Threats are growing more persistent, and becoming more sophisticated. Attacks are growing in frequency, targeting financial assets, industrial control systems, IoT devices and data-rich content. Now is the perfect time to obtain or hone the skills so desperately needed to defend against the cyber threats of today. But be prepared, as the needs of tomorrow will require awareness of the changing landscape and constant education to remain ahead of the curve.
