Cybersecurity professionals work on the front lines to keep everything from our bank accounts to top military secrets safe. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has increasingly conducted business, shopping, education and other communications virtually. The result: an explosion of highly paid jobs and new career paths in this often overlooked industry.
In New Jersey alone, there are over 11,000 available jobs in the cybersecurity industry, and more than 450,000 positions available nationwide. Jobs are available to students from a wide range of academic disciplines. The average entry-level salary in cybersecurity is $72,964; for top jobs, salaries can exceed $200,000.
The third annual New Jersey Cybersecurity Connect-Collaborate-Careers conference will connect students and university faculty and administrators with cybersecurity business leaders. It is open to New Jersey’s higher education communities and cybersecurity industries. Registration is free, but required.
