Re: Academy Corporations vs. Big Salary Temptation
Cybersecurity is a very high stress job due to the number of villains to be dealt with.  It is also the one IT field that has yet to be decimated by outsourcing to Bangalore - though that has happened in some firms to their regret.  Merck, if memory serves, outsourced IT and paid a heavy price for it.   Salary helps alot but solid education in the field (and there are a ton of really weird degrees available) is also a key.  And the C-Suite has to be aware of the importance of cybersecurity as a policy and not just another damn IT department full of geeks doing nothing.

Academy Corporations vs. Big Salary Temptation
I find this to be commonplace. Unfortunately, facilitating the Big Salary model doesn't close the skill gap. Openly offering trainings that "academy corporations" allows for the employee to become trained in the skill sets required for the company to close the skill gap while allowing them to pursue their interest. One major pitfall to both models is even with salary progression and training alotment if internal advancement isn't offered you will have difficulty with employee retention.
