Got Burgeoning Hacking Skills? Consider a Degree in Cyber Security - Cybrary

Got burgeoning hacking skills? Growing cyber security talents? A compelling mission to join or continue working in the cyber security industry? A cyber security degree is something to seriously consider:

  • Cybercrime continues to grow into more of a global threat – just read the news.
  • Small, medium and large companies desperately need competent individuals to fight crime that come in the forms of security breaches and online attacks.
  • Cybersecurity professionals report an average salary of $116,000, or approximately $55.77 per hour. That’s nearly three times the national median income for full-time wage and salary workers, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. (Aug 8, 2013)
  • The Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) also states that jobs in cyber security are slated to increase by 22% through 2020.


The more educated you are, the better your chances of climbing the ladder. A degree in cyber security means you’re qualified to handle and manage several areas of cyber and network security. If you’re new to the field, a degree could get your foot in the door with various companies/organizations seeking solid talent in this exploding job field. If you already work in this field, a degree can give you an extra leg-up and the potential for better long-term career growth.

With your passion for cyber security and helping others, your degree could bring you closer to the work and the lifestyle you seek to enjoy.
