Job Outlook:
Computer security specialists plan, coordinate, and maintain an organization’s information security. These workers educate users about computer security, install security software, monitor networks for security breaches, respond to cyber attacks, and, in some cases, gather data and evidence to be used in prosecuting cyber crime.

Employment of information security analysts, web developers, and computer network architects is projected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.

The demand for computer security specialists have increased in recent years as cyber attacks have become more sophisticated. (2012-2013 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.) Network security has risen to the top of the list of importance when it comes to a network administrator's skills. Human error is the number one cause for a security breach, and proven competency with network security is mandatory for today's employers
