Are we creating a cyber professional salary bubble that will eventually burst, asks Holly Ridgeway, SVP and CISO enterprise systems at PNC.
"It is a great time to be in the cyber security field. But, have you noticed the growing challenges of recruiting and retaining good cyber talent? Six-figure salaries used to take years to achieve. Now, if you have a specialized cyber skill set, you can attain that figure with only a few years of experience. So, the question is: Are we growing cyber professionals who do not have the foundation needed to perform at a sustained level? Are we so desperate for these skill sets that we are willing to outbid each other?"
