Cybersecurity has emerged as one of the most important fields that exists to protect us from digital attacks across all sectors of business, government and in our personal lives…Gov. Doug Ducey.
Arizona is a growing epicenter for cyber solutions in the private and public sectors. This includes military research at places like Fort Huachuca, cybersecurity operations at dozens of American companies, as well as coalitions like the Arizona Cyber Threat Response Alliance, which serves as a hub for cyber information-sharing with partners from industry, academia, law enforcement and intelligence.
A 2015 report, “Job Market Intelligence: Cybersecurity Jobs, 2015,” ranked Arizona # 15 in the country for total job postings in the sector. Phoenix-area job postings increased 101 percent between 2010-14, compared to 91percent nationally.
