Despite the mounting concerns and increasing attacks, many cybersecurity jobs go unfilled with the demand for qualified worker outpacing the supply of them. The Supply-Demand ratio is almost three times lower for the cybersecurity field as it is for the national average, with a lower ratio indicating a shortage of workers. States with the highest ratio for cybersecurity workers include Alabama, Delaware, and Colorado.
This chart shows the ratio of existing cybersecurity workers to cybersecurity job openings by state, 2018.
