The World of Cybersecurity

We can guess what many of you are thinking.  Cybersecurity? With my background?

Yet cybersecurity careers permeate nearly every industry and government agency today, and the people they are recruiting–and skills demanded–are expanding across the range of security, privacy, law and policy domains.

It’s also a fast growing industry: the Broadband Institute projects below the size of the Cybersecurity Industry to reach $248 billion in annual spending by 2023, much of this on infrastructure and people, including PhDs.

During our search this week it was evident that demand for highly-skilled people in this industry is significant and growing.  And it’s not just computer or data scientists in demand; there are jobs in privacy advocacy, policy work, technical writing and general market and business development.

As we often note here, there is also significant activity amongst start-up and emerging companies which can offer great hiring packages and exciting career opportunities.  The market map below provides a few examples of companies on the move (source: CB Insights).
