There are so many computer networking skills that are in very high demand right now. Network analysis and optimization is big, and so is virtualization, data storage, and hybrid cloud management (just to name a few).

But there is one area of expertise that outranks all others in terms of demand—and that's network security.

There is a well-documented, worldwide shortage of cyber security professionals. According to the Cybersecurity Jobs Report 2018-2021, we'll have 3.5 million unfilled cyber security positions across the globe over the next 5 years.

These jobs are not concentrated in any particular country, either. Numerous regions are feeling threatened by intensifying hacker attacks and data leaks—and a serious lack of specialists available to offer solutions.

Countries with the biggest security skills shortages include Israel, Canada, the US, Australia, India, Japan, Mexico, and parts of Europe.

This research matches what individual companies are saying about their networking needs.

In the 2018 State of Infrastructure Report, 60% of polled companies said network security was one of their biggest challenges right now—and highest priority for spending.

So let's say you've looked into computer networking careers, and you're particularly intrigued by the growing opportunities for security specialists.
