With millions of cybersecurity positions unfilled, America’s remote workforce remains at risk
COVID-19 has completely upended work as we know it. More than half of the American workforce now works remotely, with many companies planning to do so for the remainder of 2020. Conference room meetings and coffee chats have been replaced by virtual gatherings, leading to explosive growth for communication apps like Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom. Tech was already a huge part of our daily lives, but now more than ever, these apps aren’t optional – they’re essential.
As a result, the tech sector has seen increased hiring demand, even as U.S. unemployment reaches record levels not seen since The Great Depression. Companies like Oracle, Red Hat, LiveArea, and Salesforce are actively searching for workers, and some of the greatest need is for roles like computer use specialists, support desk specialists, and other IT-related positions. Some experts predict that, even against the backdrop of the pandemic, 95,400 IT jobs will be created by year’s end.
There’s one IT category, however, where demand is high but the talent pool is slim – cybersecurity.
