Research on Cyber Security Careers

The National Cyber Security Alliance, National Center for Missing and Exploited ChildrenNational Girls Collaborative ProjectNational PTA, and Student Research Foundation formed the Research Consortium on Digital Safety & Cyber Security Careers to explore parents’ awareness of:

  • Family digital safety practices, and
  • The variety of Cyber Security career opportunities available to students.

Parents of middle- and high-school students were surveyed digitally on these topics. Check out this infographic on parents’ perceptions of Cyber Security careers, and of the communication that does (or does not) happen with students about the growing opportunities in this field.
