Why Learn Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity professionals are on the front lines of digital defense for companies, protecting their critical systems and sensitive data from cyberattacks. With cybersecurity professionals in high demand, the cybersecurity field offers plentiful career and financial opportunities. The average entry-level Cybersecurity Analyst salary in Utah is $83,700 (Lightcast™ . 2022). Obtaining additional security clearances can potentially increase cybersecurity salaries.

The Demand for Cyber Talent

There are many opportunities in Utah and across the United States. According to research from cyberseek.org, in Dallas alone, there are currently over 7,000 open cybersecurity roles and a very low supply of cybersecurity talent.

Nationally, there are over half a million cyber jobs that employers are looking to fill. Plus, local high-tech companies like Goldman Sachs, Adobe, Accenture, Intermountain Healthcare, and Travelers are currently hiring (Lightcast™ . 2022).

These companies are hiring for roles like IT Help Desk Specialist, Systems Support Specialist, and Cybersecurity Analyst. Grads of the USU Cyber Bootcamp curriculum are qualified for employment in any of these jobs--and more!
