Fortune reports that cybersecurity is a broad and dynamic field that’s in high demand and pays well.

Jimmie Lenz, director of the master’s of engineering in cybersecurity and master’s of engineering in fintech programs at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering,” defines cybersecurity as the “protection and detection of electronic attacks.”

From fighting off cybercriminals to securing systems to fending off nation-states who wish to challenge the integrity of governmental systems, the field of cybersecurity is interesting and ever-evolving.

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

Fortune helps job seekers understand the market by examining 7 types of cybersecurity, 8 types of cyber threats, and potential careers including cybercrime analysts, IT auditors involved with risk assessments, and Cybersecurity engineers.

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