Robust Demand for Cybersecurity Experts
in a Multi-Billion Dollar Industry


Global spending on Cybersecurity by governments and corporations is expected to hit $86 billion by 2016, according to Gartner, Inc., an information technology research and advisory firm. There are over 500,000 attacks on corporations globally every day, with America's leading companies experiencing billions of dollars of intellectual property theft, much of which goes unnoticed.

Even large corporations such as Target, Apple, Twitter, The New York Times Co. and Sony have recently experienced cyber-attacks. The costs of damages arising from such breaches have also focused attention on national security.

With the corporate sector and the US government facing potentially crippling attacks every day, the Pentagon alone has announced it is set to increase its cybersecurity personnel five-fold over the next few years.  

Demand for Cybersecurity experts in the United States is exceeding the available supply by a widening margin, according to a recent study by Burning Glass Technologies. The study found that demand for Cybersecurity professionals grew 3.5 times faster than the demand for other IT jobs and about 12 times quicker than for all other jobs between 2005 and 2012, making it one of the country’s most highly sought-after fields.

This represents a tremendous opportunity for rapid growth as the need for Cybersecurity expertise continues to expand, and Cyber 360 Inc. aims to be at the forefront of this industry.
