Tips on how to earn higher income in Cybersecurity


Everyone knows that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!

On and on, statistics have always shown that development pays more than Cybersecurity. The reason behind this is often attributed to cybersecurity being seen as a "cost center" rather than a domain that is "revenue generating" like software engineering

I do agree that traditional cybersecurity roles (like SOC, forensics, pentesting, GRC) generate less VALUE than their software counterparts so naturally it will pay less. Completely understandable

Now comes the crucial question, How can a cybersecurity employee SURPASS the salary of employees in development?

As the saying goes, If you cannot surpass them, BE LIKE THEM

Combining Cybersecurity into Development is the KEY to higher salaries

  1. ML Engineers specialising in Cyber use-cases eg. attack triage/detection, spam filtering, malware detection, anti-fraud etc

  2. Security Software Engineers (SWE with an eye towards secure coding)

  3. DevSecOps (injecting security automations in DevOps)

and many more

Now security will not be seen as a "cost center" since there's an output (revenue generating)

Cheers to a more fulfilling career.
