According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for talent continues to outstrip supply. Information security analysts’ employment is projected to grow 28 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for jobs in cybersecurity is expected to be very high, as these analysts will be needed to create innovative solutions to prevent hackers from stealing critical information or accessing unsecure networks.
