Today’s cybersecurity industry is expected to grow by almost $100 billion dollars by 2020.  That means an unprecedented number of jobs to fill to meet the demand and keep our economic and national security intact.  Job postings have increased 74 percent in the past five years, with a global projection of 1.5 million unfilled jobs over the next five years.  Many are calling the increasing shortage of workers a “national crisis.”
