Cybersecurity Ventures reported there have been one million cybersecurity job openings in 2016
OREANDA-NEWS. Cybersecurity, a growing field, has seen exponential growth in job opportunities. Cybersecurity Ventures reported there have been one million cybersecurity job openings in 2016. That number is projected to reach 1.5 million by 2019. This is notable considering the overall unemployment rate rose to 5 percent in September, according to the monthly jobs report.
While there is a consensus in the industry that more needs to be done to entice employees at all levels to join the field, there are few resources providing a true peek into the day-to-day life of these professionals.
As a National Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champion, Level 3 created a video series featuring a variety of security professionals to encourage more people of all skill levels to consider a career in cybersecurity.
