As cybersecurity threats and attacks are on the rise, Burning Glass has partnered with the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD), Purdue Cyber Apprenticeship Program (P-CAP), and CompTIA to create an online resource to promote and support job growth in the emerging industry of cybersecurity.
Visitors to the CyberSeek Indiana site will find a variety of useful information about supply and demand in the cybersecurity job market, heat maps showing locations of jobs and apprenticeships, and contacts for training providers. The data is geared toward employers, educators and students, with the goal of filling current open positions and growing the cybersecurity workforce in Indiana. According to our data in CyberSeek, there are currently 20,549 cybersecurity job openings in Indiana.
Cybersecurity workers protect the nation’s most important and private information, from bank accounts to sensitive military communications. However, there is a dangerous shortage of cybersecurity workers in the United States that puts the nation’s digital privacy and infrastructure at risk.
“The cybersecurity talent shortage is a global challenge requiring local solutions,” said Will Markow, managing director of Burning Glass Technologies. “No two communities have the exact same cyber workforce needs, but you can’t address those needs if you don’t know what they are. CyberSeek Indiana was developed to arm individuals, employers, and educators with the data and tools necessary to prepare for the unique blend of cybersecurity jobs and skills required in every community across Indiana.”
