U.S. Cybersecurity Pay Outstrips Europe and Asia: 90% of Professionals Happy


A massive 90 percent of cybersecurity professionals would recommend the profession to graduates – and few fear the impact of AI on the sector, a new survey shows. The report, which focuses on salaries in the sector, also reveals that European and Asia Pacific-based cybersecurity professionals are being outstripped in earnings by their US-based counterparts.

The survey comes, however, as a mere 9 percent of millennials reported an interest in pursuing a cybersecurity career, according to a report. The lack of interest in cybersecurity does not stem from a lack of interest in tech, the report found: of the 524 millennials and post-millennials surveyed, 48% had been part of a STEM program during their K-12 education.
