The Demand for Cyber Talent

The opportunity is massive in both Dallas and across the United States. According to research from cyberseek.org, in Dallas alone, there are currently over 19,000 open cybersecurity roles and a very low supply of cybersecurity talent.

Nationally, there are over half a million cyber jobs that employers are trying to fill. Businesses actively seeking cybersecurity professionals span across all industries and sizes, and they include local high-tech employers like KPMG, Accenture, and USAA, to name a few.

These companies are hiring for roles like Cybersecurity Specialist, Network Security Engineer, and Vulnerability Analyst. Grads studying the UT Dallas Cyber Bootcamp curriculum have been hired for all of these roles—and more.
