Cybersecurity is vital for the safety of private information, making a career in this industry very rewarding. Read on to find out why you should consider a career in cybersecurity.

There are countless job opportunities in cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is a rapidly growing industry. Businesses have a need for cybersecurity talent to ensure the safety of their own private information, and the privacy of their customers.

For example, the Medibank data breach in 2023 which saw the insurer lose approximately 13,000 customers.

It is estimated there are 3.5 million job opportunities in cybersecurity worldwide, with the number of jobs having grown by 350 percent with only 1 million jobs available in 2014.

High entry-level salary

The entry level salary for a cybersecurity role starts from about AU$70,000, with an average of around AU$97,000. This is $10,000 higher than the average entry level salary in Australia. 

Cybersecurity roles are in very high demand so it’s a great time to jump on the wagon. It doesn’t matter if you’re a school leaver, looking for a career change or someone returning to work. There is a whole world of opportunities on offer.

Many niches to choose from and career pathways

Within the cybersecurity field, there are countless specialisations and career pathways. From consultant, engineer, architect, responder, auditor and so many more, you will be able to find a niche that you enjoy.

Cybersecurity is also very fast-paced by nature which means you will need to be able to adapt to situations. Technology is always evolving and your role will do the same. You get to learn, and in turn, further your career.
