IT security jobs: What's in demand and how to meet it

The information security job market continues to expand. In fact, according to a report by Burning Glass Technologies, over the past five years demand for cybersecurity professionals grew 3.5 times faster than that for other IT jobs.

To make things even more interesting for those looking to pursue a career in information security, the InformationWeek 2013 Salary Survey reports that 63% of IT security staffers are satisfied or very satisfied with all aspects of their jobs, while nearly two-thirds of IT security managers are similarly content. The demand for security pros is booming, so much so that the gender gap has nearly closed when it comes to pay.
