Cybersecurity experts expect demand to remain high in 2023

As per report published by Fortune Education, cybersecurity experts expect demand to remain high this year, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the number of cybersecurity jobs will grow by 35% between 2021 and 2031. Worldwide, there are about 3.5 million open cybersecurity jobs, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. In the U.S. alone, that number is about 770,000, data from Cyberseek, a cybersecurity industry research company, shows.

“That number might decline, but I suspect you’ll see the number of jobs decrease that are available, but likely not switch to less jobs available than available talent,” Nick Schneider, president and CEO of cybersecurity company Arctic Wolf, tells Fortune. “There’ll still be a skills gap. It will just be smaller.”

Fortune spoke with a few cybersecurity experts about what to expect for cybersecurity hiring trends in 2023. Cybersecurity pros predict that job demand will remain highmore women will land jobs in the industry, and that upskilling will be at the top of mind for both employees and employers.
