Cyber security was born in 1989, when a man named Robert Morris created the first “computer worm”, which was a fast-spreading virus that was able to shut down a portion of the Internet. Cybersecurity is currently one of the fastest growing job markets in today’s society.
Cybersecurity will have a profound impact on the job market. Increasingly more new job will be required at major corporations and even smaller firms. Currently more than 46% of the organizations experience shortage of cybersecurity expertize in 2016, which translates into a continued need for training and hiring security experts.

The annual salary of an information security technician is somewhere in the range of $90,000 per year. Positions include security analyst, security engineer, security architect, security administrator, chief information security officer (CISO), chief security officer (CSO), security consultant, security specialist, security intelligence officer, and many more.
