Invest to Improve: The Cybersecurity Talent Deficit provides recommendations for cybersecurity stakeholders—employers, government agencies, and higher education institutions—to enable regional partnerships to meet today’s cybersecurity skills needs. This report combines data from a 2017 Gallup survey of business executives and higher education leaders with jobs analyses from Burning Glass Technologies, as well as, for the first time, detailed student demographic and wage data—following them from their college studies to the cybersecurity profession. The findings of this report document the need to develop new approaches to nurture cybersecurity talent in an era in which employers from all sectors must protect their information and systems from extraordinary levels of risk.
