Shortage of IT Security Professionals

New IT and IS Security job opportunities.

This morning NPR had a story entitled “Cyberwarrior Shortage Threatens U.S. Security”. A very real threat requiring highly trained professionals.

“We don’t have sufficiently bright people moving into this field to support those national security objectives as we move forward in time,” says James Gosler, a veteran cybersecurity specialist who has worked at the CIA, the National Security Agency, and the Energy Department.

This shortage of trained professionals will reach crisis level in the next few years, now is the time to promote yourself and get in on the jobs opportunities.

With the economy in a slump and the unemployment levels at the highest rate they’ve seen in decades here’s an industry starving for professionals.

Use this to your advantage, take a few classes, see how you could help fill this job gap. Staying up-to-date on the latest technology is not simple, it takes effort and diligence, but it’s a necessary field for the future, worldwide.
