The highest paying jobs in cybersecurity
San Francisco, Oct. 2, 2022
As the threat of hacking continues to grow, corporate executives are forced to respond accordingly. “Fortune” reached out to Steve Morgan. He is founder of Cybersecurity Ventures. What does he recommend for corporate leaders? Morgan notes: the focus on cybersecurity needs to start in the boardroom.
Who might be considered for that? It could be the [chief information security officer (CISO)] or an outside executive with hands-on cybersecurity experience. And, he urges, “Do it now to protect your business, not after a security breach or hack to protect your reputation.”
However, Morgan says, cybersecurity talent shouldn’t just operate in the boardroom. Companies need more cybersecurity talent in the pipeline for entry-level and mid-level jobs. Their pay is by no means less-you’re still getting six-figure salaries. This brings us to the thematics. What do cybersecurity professionals get paid?
This much is certain: many jobs in the security field are better paid than jobs in other technically oriented professions.
Entry-level positions include information security analyst. These specialists drew an average salary of $102,600 in 2021. These figures can be found in statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor.
Professionals in this field can continue to expect higher-than-average paychecks. Between 2020 and 2021, cybersecurity salaries increased by more than 16% as shown in a 2021 report by Dice, a tech recruiting platform.
Cybersecurity manager: the average salary was $151,902, according to Glassdoor.
Job Description: According to Tulane University’s School of Professional Advancement, cybersecurity managers “oversee the channels flowing into and out of an organization’s information network. They also oversee security systems and teams and watch for potential network vulnerabilities to prevent attacks.
