About this tool
Cybersecurity workers protect our most important and private information, from bank accounts to sensitive military communications. However, there is a dangerous shortage of cybersecurity workers in the United States that puts our digital privacy and infrastructure at risk.
From April 2017 through March 2018, there were 122,000 openings for Information Security Analysts, but only 105,000 workers currently employed in those positions – an annual talent shortfall of 17,000 workers for cybersecurity’s largest job.
There are nearly 200,000 additional openings requesting cybersecurity-related skills, and employers are struggling to find workers who possess them. Jobs requesting public cloud security skills, for example, remain open 79 days on average – longer than almost any other IT skill.
To help close the cybersecurity skills gap, CyberSeek provides detailed, actionable data about supply and demand in the cybersecurity job market.
