Master in Cybersecurity - High-Impact Careers

Lead and design organizational Cyber Security strategies to manage digital risk across businesses, governments and societies in our continuously growing digital environment.

Cybersecurity Career Opportunities

Advances in technology and increasing interconnectedness don’t come without risk. Cyber crime is ranked among the top three risks the world will face this year, according to the World Economic Forum. That means companies, governments and individuals must prepare for sudden and dramatic disruptions caused by cyber attacks.

Cyber crime also generates huge losses—monetary, reputational, intellectual—so it’s no surprise it has become an important topic of debate in company boardrooms. It is no longer an IT/IS problem; it is a company-wide critical threat, forcing organizations across sectors to arm themselves with teams of cyber defenders.

The problem: there’s an extremely short supply of talent in the field, and of professionals with hands-on tech experience and the business savvy to lead teams and manage strategies.

Tech has taken over the world; and the outlook for jobs and salaries in digital security is outstanding.

Hard data...

We expect the world to employ 6 million cybersecurity professionals by 2019. (Cisco)

Numbers that speak for themselves:

2014: 1 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally. 2021: number will grow to 3.5 million openings. Cybersecurity unemployment rate has plummeted to 0% and it's expected to remain there in the coming years. (Cisco)

Hot skills that may lead to a pay raise: threat intelligence, security software development, cloud, auditing, and big data analysis. (ISC)


Organizations, governments and institutions need to develop a clear cyber security strategy that aligns the organizational and the customers’ data and privacy needs.

Between 50-70% of large companies globally have a CISO (chief information security officer) today and 1/3 of hiring managers plan to boost their security teams by 15%. (Center for Cyber Safety and Education)
