Unfilled cybersecurity jobs in San Diego prompt more cooperation between industry, local colleges
April 9, 2018
- San Diego’s rapidly growing cybersecurity industry is boosting its cooperation with local colleges and universities.
- The goal is keeping more local graduates in the area instead of Silicon Valley.
- With more than 7,600 jobs, the industry has an estimated $2.37 billion impact.
In San Diego, the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command – a division of the U.S. Defense Department known as SPAWAR — employs 3,390 cyber security workers, according to the analysis by the economic development corporation.
That’s nearly half of the 7,620 total jobs in the region, with the 4,230 not working at SPAWAR sprinkled across 104 private firms that include ESET, LP3-SecurIT, Security on Demand and iNetwork.
