If you are in some other sphere of professionalism and want to start a career in the field of Cybersecurity, we have really good news for you. Research proves that Cybersecurity professionals who had initially started their careers in other fields and later moved on to become Cybersecurity employees are more likely to be paid higher than a person who has pursued his/her career completely in Cybersecurity from the initial stage.

 

It is so likely because no matter what degree you possess, your earning depends on your work experience in the Cybersecurity industry. For example, a Cybersecurity professional possessing a degree in any engineering field related to Cybersecurity is paid the same as a person not possessing a professional engineering degree. It is not on the ground of educational qualification but, on the ground of experience on which the payroll is issued. The more time you stay in the industry, the more you get paid, and that’s a factual reality as you would be gathering more experience in the industry. The Cybersecurity IT industry is currently experiencing a global crisis due to a lack of relevant skills in an applicant. Companies will pay a large sum of money to you if you possess the skillsets no matter what is your education background. The even bigger news is that 0% of unemployment has been recorded in the Cybersecurity industry.

Young professionals are provided with career development, mentorship and cross-training. This is where the companies invest for initiatives to attract more youngsters into this field.

 

Currently, more than 50% of the Cybersecurity personnel are found to have started their careers in other industries and have moved here later. It is also found that almost 65% of the job shifters do not look forward towards leaving this sector. There are many reasons, and they stay in demand, are paid high, are respect and are also paid with respect to their experience and skills.

 

According to recent surveys, the sector is running short of skilled employees to fill the position gaps around the world.
