    Kinda interesting. Wish they would've broke down the specific roles in security that are hard to fill by percentage instead of grouping it all up. But with the random titles maybe that would've been too difficult.

    hey Replicon,

    Looks like you took the same certification path that I am on now (CEH, VCP, and than SSCP). Have you broken into the Security field yet? Just looking for any advice.
    2018 Goals: CCNA R&S, CySA+, and VCP6.5

    The article says the supply of Ethical Hacker exceeds the demand, but the Certified Ethical Hacker is a very specific certification. So are they referring to the demand for "Certified Ethical Hacker" CED certified holders, or do they really mean penetration testers. If they are referring to penetration testers, they are only one specialty in the Cyber Security industry. There's Incident response, malware analysts, digital forensics, venerability analysts, etc. The article seems to make the assumption if you have an "Ethical Hacker" on staff, you meant the Cyber Security requirements for your company, and nothing could be further from the truth.

    This article says the shortage of qualified cyber security professional is a myth, what it fails to take into account is Federal government positions are highly desirable, regardless what the position is the number of applicants will almost always exceeds the demand. Typically there are 5 applicants for every job opening, often it's far higher than that. One position posted logistic management specialist job had over 500 applicants. So is the conclusion the country has 500x the number of logistic management specialists United States needs?
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.
