Cybrary’s 2016 Cyber Security Job Trends Report [Infographic]

Published: December 16, 2015 | By: RY4N C0R3Y | Views: 8404

Recently, we surveyed 435 senior-level cyber security professionals on topics surrounding the cyber security job market, and discussed the directions the market may be heading.

As we’ve discussed many times, cyber security’s skills gap is massive, incomparable to anything in the world’s recent labor market. We packaged the results of the survey into the infographic below.

We present data on expected growth rates, upcoming cyber security job demands, duration of job openings, the most highly sought after certifications and industry average salaries.

As we saw in 2015, there’s a burgeoning demand for cyber security talent. However, the supply of talent cannot support that demand. Therefore, in 2016, the cyber security skills gap will continue to grow at a record pace.

    Hey everyone.The above article says that the survey ask seniors, right? Which is kind of weird since a senior in the cyber division can easily earn more than 100k, and not just 12%. Also there are a lot of people that own an SIO position that mean easy more than 200k salary without bonuses. Especially in strong countries as USA,UK,Arabic Emirates,Switzerland,Germany etc.

    25K seems too low…
