Cybersecurity in not only a current hot topic, it has also generated enormous demand for workers who have the knowledge and ability to protect the structures that undergird informational systems utilized by governments, organizations, and individuals. However, cybersecurity is a diffuse term which encompasses many different types of activities and work requirements. Consequently, a single standard curriculum, or even a few curricula, cannot adequately serve to educate a workforce for the multitude of cybersecurity jobs that have arisen. In this paper we examine the range of cybersecurity employment opportunities and attempt to determine which sets of knowledge, skills, and abilities, are required to serve which types of demands.
