About this episode

In this episode, I am currently reviewing a survey of IT leaders from companies like Bank of America, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, AT&T, and Salesforce. Nearly all the respondents, roughly 98%, said that cybersecurity talent would be crucial for their business’s success over the next 6 to 18 months.

So, it looks like the job market will be picking up again for cybersecurity professionals, and that is great news for all of you, too.

Episode Transcript

Kip Boyle: 

Hi, it’s Kip. You must be listening to me right now because you wanted the latest episode of Your Cyber Path. Well, I’m here to remind you that Wes and I have switched to an every other week schedule. Unfortunately, this is the first week off, so there’s no full show for you today. You know, as practitioners, husbands and dads, the weekly schedule was just too aggressive for us, and we were concerned about disappointing you at some point in the future by not getting a high quality episode out on time.

But since you’re here, I’ve got a little bonus for you. I was just reviewing a survey of IT leaders from companies like Bank of America, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, AT&T and Salesforce, and nearly all the respondents, like 98%, said that cybersecurity talent would be crucial for businesses over the next 6 to 18 months, and this survey was just taken. So it looks like the job market is going to pick up for cybersecurity people and that’s great. I’m really happy to see this and I’m glad I had a chance to share it with you now.

Okay, I’m just going to wrap up here by asking you one thing. Do you want us to answer a question about getting your dream cybersecurity job on a future episode?
