Heightened by the frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks, the number of job opportunities in the field of information security (InfoSec), especially for security analysts, is projected to skyrocket in the coming years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects to see more than 27,000 additional specialists nationwide to have already secured employment by 2022. This represents a 37 percent spike in the number of InfoSec workers employed in 2012. Most organizations in Los Angeles depend on skilled professionals to protect their computer networks and systems.
