#1Cyber Security Education Demand
CSO Online reports that firm ESG conducted their latest annual survey (2018) of 620 IT and cybersecurity professional across all industries.

Here’s the recent data:
• 2014: 23 percent of respondents claimed their organisation had a problematic shortage of cybersecurity skills
• 2016: 46 percent of respondents claimed their organisation had a problematic shortage of cybersecurity skills
• 2018: 51 percent of respondents claimed their organisation had a problematic shortage of cybersecurity skills (1).
Importance of #HigherEducation
If ever you wondered the value of a University Degree in terms of your advance into Cyber, please read the following! The SANS Institute, a prominent US research body, reported that formal education continues to be an important consideration for gaining an IT management role. Slightly more than 75% of all respondents have at least a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent), with 30% having a Master’s degree, MBA, or higher. Likewise, Burning Glass Technologies’ Report on the Growth of Cybersecurity Jobs mirrors’ these findings. Some 84% of cybersecurity job postings require applicants to hold at least a bachelor’s degree (2).
