Danish Arshad, Executive Director of EC-Council, quoted, "Industry leaders such as the President of IBM acknowledge that the demand for skilled security professionals is one of the biggest challenges facing the industry today, and it's only expected to grow; experts predict a shortage of 1.5 million open and unfilled security positions by 2020. This gap is further exasperated by a lack of the right skills needed to meet the modern security landscape. In the face of increasing threats, this is a shortage the industry simply cannot afford. Cybercrime will cost the world more than $6 Trillion annually by 2021 (according to a recent report published by Cybersecurity Ventures) and with the Demand of Cybersecurity experts expected to rise to 6 Million globally by 2019 with a projected shortfall of 1.5 Million, cybersecurity personnel have become one of the most sought after resource that organizations are looking to invest in now. Another report by Cybersecurity Ventures also highlighted that the unemployment level in the Cybersecurity field being ‘Zero’ in 2016-17 is a clear example of the opportunities that individuals will be able to leverage after going through EC-Council certifications delivered by Microtek.
