Masters In Cyber Security Boosts Career Outlook

There couldn’t be a better time than now to pursue a masters in cyber security degree. Today, the demand for cyber security professionals is growing three and a half times faster than the IT job market and in 2014 there were 1 million unfilled cyber security jobs globally.

Cyber security degrees are the stepping stone you need to a successful career in the cyber security field.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, cyber security professionals report an annual salary that is nearly three times the national median income. The Bureau experts also expect jobs as network systems and information security professionals to grow by 53% in the next four years.
