Cybersecurity is in high demand.

"There are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those that will be."

-Robert Mueller, former FBI director


The cybersecurity industry is growing at a breathtaking rate of 11.9% every year, and is projected to be a $258.99 billion market by 2025. Why? Cybercrime is growing just as fast. The annual cost of cybercrime globally is projected to reach $5 trillion in the next few years. And that means cybersecurity professionals are in high demand.
