According to the projections from the Statistics of U.S. Business, the need for labor in the field of cybersecurity will increase by 37% between 2012 and 2022. At the IDC’s Cybersecurity Summit held in Istanbul as of February 2018, it was stated that the number of cybersecurity specialists currently needed worldwide was 1,200,000. The annual need for specialists in the field of cybersecurity is higher than the sum of all the graduates from electrical electronics and engineering departments. It is a consensus among all the specialists that this need will increase incrementally.
Trade has been substantially transferred to the electronic environments (such as Amazon and Alibab). On the other hand, social media platforms (Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter etc.) have become something indispensable for people. As the governmental services are increasingly becoming electronic, the need of any type of organizations/corporations and companies for data, information security and cybersecurity specialist is further increasing.
Electronic systems are becoming more exposed to cyber-attacks as the cities are becoming “smart” through electronic services, the applications in the field of Internet of Things (IoT) are becoming more popular, industrial control systems and SCADA systems are being preferred in the national critical infrastructures and, the increase in digitalization of transportation and communication at an unprecedented pace.
For these reasons and more, it is obvious that the need for cybersecurity specialists will increase day by day.
