Amid a shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals, here are the three positions in the field that companies are seeking out the most, according to tech staffing firm Mondo.
Cybersecurity roles rank among the most difficult to fill in the enterprise, with the talent gap in this field expected to reach 1.8 million jobs by 2022. This is a major problem, as threats such as ransomware are at an all-time high, according to Stephen Zafarino, senior director of recruiting at Mondo, a national staffing agency specializing in niche IT, tech, and digital marketing talent.
“It definitely can be a challenge—demand is extremely high, and supply is very low, so it’s a candidate’s market,” Zafarino said. “Companies see the benefit of making sure they are investing in the right talent from the best places, and are definitely paying a heavy price as a result.”
