Cyber security is a global concern, affecting countries and companies across all levels and geographies. Organizations, irrespective of their size and scale, are allocating special budgets to take care of cyber security threats currently plaguing the corporate world. However, there’s a dearth of skilled professionals to take on the challenges of an IT security profession. According to information security experts, currently, there are over a billion dollar worth cyber security positions lying vacant due to shortage of skilled candidates. The hiring crisis in cyber security is real, and it can only be bridged by training professionals on most wanted information security skills.
The depth and breadth of knowledge required to fulfill a burgeoning demand of cyber security professionals include threat mitigation, advanced analytics, cryptography, network virtualization, forensics, cloud and mobile security among others.

“Cyber security breaches since 2012 have been on an exponential rise. The big names and high profile breaches only add to the severity of the problem, and the skills gap continues to expand. As a result, salaries for cyber security professionals are skyrocketing, since IT personnel with requisite skill sets are few in numbers. The cyber security talent is available in a relatively small number of geographic locations, while the need for cyber skills is widespread across the globe.” Says Mr. Santosh Kumar, Group Technical Manager (Security Products, Security Testing, Security Management) at Koenig Solutions Ltd.
By 2022, jobs related to cyber security are expected to increase by 37% according to Bureau of Labor Statistics. It is a secure career option with median salary of $86,170 for information security analysts. From here, participants can move on to other advanced branches including cyber forensics, or become security architects and CISOs for enterprise security.
Top Paying Industries:-
Banking and Financial Services Industry, Healthcare, Retail, Energy & Utilities industry are the most porous industries that absorb cyber security professionals. Stakes are usually high in the financial services sector, which is why the industry needs information security personnel with highly specialized skill sets to counter sophisticated cyber-attacks.
The solution to fill or minimize this gaping wide skills gap is to create a highly competent talent pool by imparting cyber security training to candidates who are willing to go into the depths of a security career. While organizations can focus on their existing areas of concern and train existing employees on specific skill-sets, individuals who wish to embark on a security career are sometimes left clueless about where to begin and which skill to learn. Identifying the right certification to get the desired position is half the battle won. Apart from technical skills that can be learned in a training school, participants must have some inherent personality traits that can help them become successful in this vocation. A security professional must have an analytical bent of mind, quick thinking and eye for detail. He/she must have the ability to delve deeper into the depths of how a computer works. To maximize the potential of learning and tapping the benefits of this ongoing wave, candidates need to be proactive and get certified to enhance their employability.
Koenig Solutions offers technical guidance based on a candidate’s experience, skills, strengths and aptitude to suggest the most appropriate course for a best possible career graph. The company is home to more than 300 certified in-house trainers who are subject matter experts in their respective fields of study.
