Fortune Reports that cybersecurity is a large and dynamic field, in high demand and well paid.

Jimmie Lenz, director of the Master of Engineering in Cybersecurity and Master of Engineering in FinTech at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering, defines cybersecurity as “the protection and detection of electronic attacks.”

Whether fighting cybercriminals, securing systems, or fending off nation states that wish to question the integrity of government systems, the field of cybersecurity is interesting and constantly evolving.

There is an estimate 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs around the world, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that information security analysts – a title similar to cybersecurity professionals – are the fifth fastest-growing occupation.

Fortune helps job seekers understand the market looking at 7 types of cybersecurity, 8 types of cyber threats, and potential careers including cybercrime analysts, IT auditors involved in risk assessment, and cybersecurity engineers.

“They really run the gamut,” Lenz says of the opportunities the market offers. “This is a vital function for any type of organization.”
