With the White House only recently hiring its first ever chief information security officer, and a number of data breaches sweeping the country, the cyber secure start to 2016 that we’d hoped for looks doubtful.
But the good news is that cybersecurity jobs in the US are on the rise, and salaries are rising with it. According to online recruiter Indeed.com, cybersecurity jobs requiring ISO 27001 qualifications are now starting at $70,000 and rising up to $120,000.
Candidates with ISO 27001 knowledge and experience are highly regarded within the US due to the growing concern of cyber crime and the increasing pressure on businesses to prove to their stakeholders that they are cyber secure.
ISO 27001 is the only internationally recognized standard that specifies requirements for an information security management system (ISMS), providing a systematic approach to managing confidential or sensitive corporate information so that it remains secure.
While ISO 27001 is a standard that organizations can achieve certification against to prove their commitment to corporate cyber security, individuals can also achieve ISO 27001 qualifications to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in implementing the Standard.
Increase your salary by gaining highly sought-after ISO 27001 qualifications with the ISO 27001 Foundation (CIS F) and Lead Implementer (CIS LI) courses.
