Tons of $80,000 entry-level cybersecurity jobs are sitting empty

To make matters worse, cybersecurity suffers from an image problem.
The field pays well, but many computer science students would rather create new products and technologies for Apple or Google.
“Computer science is sexy. Cyber isn’t,” said P.K. Agarwal, regional dean of Northeastern University’s Silicon Valley campuses, which teach cybersecurity. The field offers high-stress jobs “where you can get fired if things go wrong, and no one pats you on the back if there were no problems overnight,” he added.
