I have touched on this before friends, this is an important issue, there is a tremendous shortage of qualified cybersecurity professionals out there. Do you own look-up on Google and Co., the Air Force and the Air Force Association consider it a matter of National Security! This is just one article, so find your own. The US here, but really whatever nation you are from is likely to be facing the same shortage worldwide, needs people, especially school age kids to be looking at cybersecurity jobs for their future. As the article points out as well, EVERY IT job is now a cybersecurity job. You built an app you have to consider security. You build a website, you have to think security, because especially those of you doing freelance work, your customers are likely not doing it, breaches happen to other people. I used to do Freelance work... so many companies and software now build web sites for people cheaper than we can. Seriously consider making the move into cybersecurity, the jobs are out there, abundant, and international. And if you are not interested, talk to your kids or youth that you know. Show them programs like CyberPatriot. Especially girls, there are few to many in this career path. Hackers are not going away, more Nation-States are developing Cyber-attacks against their enemies. You know someone considering the Military? Every branch has cyber specialist fields now, from front-line troops needing protection for their communications to the premiere Cyber Warriors of the US Air Force protecting UAVs (drones), military communications and space born satellites. Not to mention NSA, CIA and other alphabet agencies from other countries. The field is wide open to those of you willing to give it a shot.
