How will cyber security talent needs change in the next five years?
“The cyber security demand explosion started less than five years ago with the Target retail breach. So, if we look at how dramatically the market has changed in that period of time, we can certainly expect a lot of change over the next five years. With new cyber technology advances, there will be an emphasis on higher value work and analysis to leverage that technology. Commodity work will go away or be outsourced. Therefore, talent must always be reinvesting in themselves to stay relevant. The U.S. market is the most developed commercial market at this point. As the rest of the world invests in cyber risk management, American workers will have great opportunities abroad. For those willing to move, they will have significant opportunities over the next five years.”
