A heat map of cybersecurity supply and demand
From April 2020 through March 2021, there were 144,700 openings for Information Security Analysts, but only 131,000 workers currently employed in those positions – an annual talent shortfall of 13,700 workers for cybersecurity’s largest job.
There are 319,720 additional openings requesting cybersecurity-related skills, and employers are struggling to find workers who possess them. On average, cybersecurity roles take 21% longer to fill than other IT jobs.
