Abstract:As cybersecurity becomes more important, demand for skilled cybersecurity professionals keeps increasing. However, due to rapid changes in the field, a gap has formed between the skills people have when freshly done with their formal education, and the expectation of employers. That has led to surveys being done with cybersecurity professionals, to determine what they issues they have encountered when actually working. However, there has been very little analysis of occupational data, as opposed to surveys which is solely based on anecdotal experience. The aim of this paper is to start with literature research, to determine a suitable data set and data processing tools. Afterwards, quantitative data analysis will be done on occupational data to get an overview of the requirements regarding cybersecurity in ICT professionals. However, the used data set was not thorough and specific enough, and had some bias, allowing no decisive conclusions to be drawn.
