Source: State of Cybesecurity: Implications for 2015 ISACA/RSA Conference Survey

It's a reflection of the overall infosec job market, where employers struggle to find enough qualified candidates and opportunities abound for the right candidates. We've put together the results from the Black Hat survey, along with a few other relevant studies out this year, to get a good picture of the market.
