1 Bridging the Cybersecurity Talent Gap Cybersecurity Employment and Opportunities for Engagement 2015 Burning Glass Technologies

2 Cybersecurity has a Big Problem Attacks are rising Cyber incidents jumped 38% year-over-year Demand for cybersecurity talent is soaring Cyber openings increased 91% from 2010 to 2014 But the supply of cybersecurity talent is lagging According to Cisco, there are 1 million unfilled cyber jobs worldwide 1

3 The Cybersecurity Skills Gap Persists As the economy moves faster, the skills gap is in danger of widening 2

4 Behind the Cybersecurity Skills Gap: An Information Gap Traditional data sources do not align well with the current realities of the cybersecurity labor market. Data are not packaged for employers or job seekers: They re designed for macro-economists Data are in broad categories Lots of cybersecurity jobs that matter are not tracked Skills and certifications are hardly tracked at all 3

5 Closing the Cybersecurity Information Gap with Real- Time Labor Market Data Real-time job market data offer up-to-date insights not possible through traditional sources Visit Online Job Sites Collect & Deduplicate Job Postings Read Postings to Generate Detailed Data Job Title & Occupation Employer & Industry Technical Skills Foundational Skills Certifications Educational Requirements Experience Levels 2015 Burning Glass Technologies - Proprietary and Confidential 4

6 It s Hard to Train People for a Job That s Not Defined To quantify and analyze the market for cybersecurity specific roles, Burning Glass developed a set of filters to identify those jobs that are directly related to network and information security. Jobs are flagged as a cybersecurity role if they meet one of the following criteria or job requirements: Cybersecurity-related title such as network security engineer, information security analyst or penetration tester Cybersecurity certification such as CISSP, CISA, or Security+ Cybersecurity skills such as information assurance, cryptography, computer forensics, malware analysis, , and 2015 Burning Glass Technologies - Proprietary and Confidential 5

7 Pulling Back the Curtain: What Trends Are Shaping the Cybersecurity Job Market? 6

8 What Trends are Shaping the Cybersecurity Job Market? Cybersecurity workers are in high demand The cybersecurity job market is growing in non-obvious places Certifications are in high demand, but certified workers are in short supply Cybersecurity jobs require a diverse and hard-to-find mix of skills and qualifications 7

9 Cybersecurity Demand is Large and Growing, But Supply is Struggling to Keep Pace In 2014, there were 238,158 postings for cybersecurity-related jobs nationally. Cybersecurity jobs account for 11% of all IT jobs. Cybersecurity postings have grown 91% from This growth rate is more than faster than IT jobs generally. Cybersecurity posting advertise a 9% salary premium over IT jobs overall. Cybersecurity job postings took 21% longer to fill than the average for all jobs, and 8% longer to fill than the average for IT jobs. The demand for certificated cybersecurity talent is outstripping supply. In the U.S., employers posted 49,493 jobs requesting a CISSP, recruiting from a pool of only 65,362 CISSP holders nationwide.* $6,459 *According to the International Information System Security Certification Consortium, Inc., (ISC)² membership counts as of July 14, Burning Glass Technologies 8

10 Employers Are Hiring a Diverse Set of Cybersecurity Roles The cybersecurity workforce covers a range of job types and skills. This includes advanced Engineer and Architect roles, Auditors (which are concentrated in Finance), and Specialists, which typically have lower entry-level requirements Burning Glass Technologies 9

11 What Trends are Shaping the Cybersecurity Job Market? Cybersecurity workers are in high demand The cybersecurity job market is growing in non-obvious places Certifications are in high demand, but certified workers are in short supply Cybersecurity jobs require a diverse and hard-to-find mix of skills and qualifications 10

12 Cybersecurity Demand is Spreading to New Industries That May Lack an Experienced Cyber Workforce Professional Services, Finance, and Manufacturing & Defense are the leading sectors for cybersecurity professionals. Sectors managing increasing volumes of consumer data such as Finance, Health Care, and Retail Trade have seen the fastest increases in demand for cybersecurity workers. Within these sectors, demand for cybersecurity professionals is growing rapidly in more specific industry subsectors not typically associated with cybersecurity, including Air Transportation (+221%) and Accommodation (+157%). *The Manufacturing Sector includes services divisions of a number of defense contractors (e.g. Raytheon) and computer manufacturers (e.g. Hewlett Packard). ** Industry growth rates are suppressed for the Public Administration and Other industry sectors because a significant portion of labor market demand in these industries exists offline Burning Glass Technologies 11

13 Cybersecurity Jobs Aren t Just in Tech Hubs Any More Top States by Total Postings* State Total Postings Location % Growth Quotient** ( ) 1 California 28, % 2 Virginia 20, % 3 Texas 18, % 4 New York 14, % 5 Illinois 11, % 6 Maryland 11, % Cybersecurity Job Postings in 2014 By State 7 Florida 9, % 8 Georgia 8, % 9 New Jersey 8, % Cybersecurity Location Quotient in 2014 By State 10 Massachusetts 7, % 11 Colorado 7, % 12 North Carolina 7, % 13 Ohio 6, % 14 Pennsylvania 5, % 15 Arizona 5, % *See Appendix 1 for state-level data tables on total postings and postings growth. **Location quotients show how concentrated demand is in a particular geography relative to employment in that area. National location quotient equals 1.0; an LQ of 1.2 indicates that demand is 20% more concentrated than nationally Burning Glass Technologies 12

14 What Trends are Shaping the Cybersecurity Job Market? Cybersecurity workers are in high demand The cybersecurity job market is growing in non-obvious places Certifications are in high demand, but certified workers are in short supply Cybersecurity jobs require a diverse and hard-to-find mix of skills and qualifications 13

15 Employers Look for Certified Cybersecurity Workers Cybersecurity jobs are highly certificated: More than one in three (35%) of all cybersecurity positions request at least one of the certifications listed below. Only 23% of overall advertised IT jobs request an industry certification. Certification increases salary: Security+ represents the entry-level certification for cybersecurity roles, and postings requesting it advertise an average salary of $75,484. This serves as a baseline salary for certified cybersecurity workers, and as workers obtain additional certification they can qualify for ever greater salaries. Postings requesting CISSP, for example, advertised an average salary of $93,010 a premium of $17,526 over the average salary for Security Burning Glass Technologies 14

16 Certifications: Too Many Openings Chasing Too Few Workers Employers prefer workers with cybersecurity certifications, but there can be two or more postings for every certificate holder. Considering that most of these certificate holders are already employed, the situation looks even better for workers possessing these certifications. Note: Different certifying organizations report slightly different counts of holders. For example, some may report total certifications awarded, while others may report only active certification holders Burning Glass Technologies 15

17 What Trends are Shaping the Cybersecurity Job Market? Cybersecurity workers are in high demand The cybersecurity job market is growing in non-obvious places Certifications are in high demand, but certified workers are in short supply Cybersecurity jobs require a diverse and hard-to-find mix of skills and qualifications 16

18 Cybersecurity Roles Require Significant Education and Experience That May Not Exist in the Market Some 84% of cybersecurity postings specify at least a bachelor s degree, and just as many (83%) require at least 3 years of experience, with an average of 5.4 years. High education and experience requirements make skills gaps hard to close. Because cybersecurity jobs require years of training and relevant experience, skills gaps cannot easily be resolved though short-term solutions. Employers and training providers must work together to cultivate a talent pipeline for these critical roles. Requested Education Level* Minimum Experience 2015 Burning Glass Technologies 17

19 Hybrid Jobs Combining Disparate Skills are Hardest to Fill The fastest-growing skills in cybersecurity postings include industry knowledge areas, such as HIPAA requirements in Health Care and Risk Management, and Accounting in Finance. The hardest-to-fill skills are typically related to finance, such as Information Assurance, Sarbanes-Oxley, and Accounting. Finding candidates with these unique skill sets can take roughly 17% longer to fill on average than other cybersecurity job openings. The difficulties in filling jobs that require a combination of IT security and financial skills reflects a broader trend in the market: hybrid jobs which combine skill sets that are not traditionally trained for together often suffer from the most severe skill gaps. Fastest-Growing Skills in Cybersecurity Job Postings Five-Year Growth Hardest to Fill Skills in Cybersecurity Job Postings Posting Duration Time to Fill Above Average Python 309% HIPAA 248% Risk Management 209% Internal Auditing 200% Audit Planning 170% Risk Assessment 169% ITIL 153% Management Information Systems 132% Accounting 121% Configuration Management 106% Management Information Systems 50 days +10 days Information Assurance 47 days +7 days Sarbanes-Oxley 47 days +7 days Accounting 45 days +5 days Python 45 days +5 days Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) 45 days +5 days Configuration Management 44 days +4 days C++ 44 days +4 days Public Accounting 43 days +3 days Internal Auditing 43 days +3 days 2015 Burning Glass Technologies 18

20 Roles Requiring Security Clearance Take Longer to Fill In 2014, 25,654 cybersecurity postings called for government Security Clearance, representing 11% of all cybersecurity postings. On average, cybersecurity postings requesting Security Clearance remained open 10% longer than cybersecurity postings overall.

22 What Are the Implications for Educators and Employers? Communicate the Value of Careers in Cybersecurity Focus on the Credentials that Matter Looking Outside of Cyber: Understand Cybersecurity Career Pathways 21

23 Sell It! Communicating the Monetary and Non-Monetary Value of Careers in Cybersecurity Students and job seekers have choices when it comes to their careers. Articulating the value of cybersecurity jobs is essential if we are to motivate them to choose careers in cyber. On average, cybersecurity jobs advertise salaries of almost $84,000. This is 9% higher than IT jobs overall. $6,459 But cybersecurity careers don t just offer monetary benefits; they also offer exciting opportunities to protect the nation s digital infrastructure Burning Glass Technologies 22

24 What Are the Implications for Educators and Employers? Communicate the Value of Careers in Cybersecurity Focus on the Credentials that Matter Looking Outside of Cyber: Understand Cybersecurity Career Pathways 23

25 Broaden the Talent Pool by Focusing on the Credentials that Matter Some credentials are rare among cybersecurity workers and may not be necessary for onthe-job success. Separating the essential credentials from the nice-to-have credentials can broaden the pool of available talent for your cybersecurity roles. Similarly, educators and job seekers can focus on the credentials that are most-demanded and most lucrative to increase their value in the market Burning Glass Technologies 24
