The gap in available, skilled talent compared with the demand for cybersecurity skills on the job market continues to widen, according to new cybersecurity workforce numbers put out by (ISC)² out last week.

The study shows a need to fill upward of 3 million cybersecurity positions worldwide – now the No. 1 concern facing security managers today. The release of this report offers a good opening for Dark Reading to revisit the latest statistics from not only (ISC)², but a number of other industry authorities with recent reports on the state of cybersecurity hiring, salaries, training, and more. They come complete with some of the most eye-opening data visualizations to provide an illuminating snapshot on the state of the cyber workforce from a number of different dimensions.
