The study found more than 80 percent of the 83 cybersecurity roles examined ended up with compensation offers higher than the salary caps in the original job posting. However, cybersecurity positions sit unfilled on an average of six months. Jane Bond Project Founder Chenxi Wang, who led the study, said cybersecurity needs HR professionals who have a better understanding of the cybersecurity industry, as well as updated IT security salary information. The study also found only 8 percent of the cybersecurity positions were occupied by women, and none had negotiated a higher salary than the original description presented.
