Gartner Says IT Security Spending to Hit $124B in 2019

Global IT security spending will grow 12.4% in 2018 and another 8.7% in 2019.

Security spending should be more than $114 billion in 2018 and grow by 8.7% to $124 billion in 2019. Privacy will drive many of the new expenditures, with identity and access management, identity governance and administration, and data loss prevention key areas of interest.

Capital purchases are not the only reason for spending: ongoing skills shortages and concerns over regulations such as GDPR are driving organizations to build more relationships with security services to bridge gaps in their capabilities.

Career choice is good too
For the obvious - security per se cannot be easily outsourced out as opposed to standard data center server support and programming functions.  Finding a qualified and experienced CIISP is hard and they can demand good salaries - and one with real world experience is the best of all.  If I were considering anything in IT right now, it would be THIS field.
