The Future of the Cyber Security Industry and how well-paying remote jobs and careers are available to Maui. For you and/or your kids. 

 Are your kids looking for careers where they can stay on Maui? Do you have customer service experience? This industry needs Customer Service Agents, Salespeople, Account Managers, Sales Engineers, and more by the thousands.

The International Information System Security Certification Consortium or ISC(2), which is a non-profit organization which specializes in training and certifications for cybersecurity professionals, states that currently there are over 500,000 job openings in the Cyber Security Industry field. These openings are not all technical and do not require degrees. Most are remote and companies require coverage 24/7 from mainland time zones. 

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimates a growth of over 10,000 jobs per year in Cyber Security in the next 5 years and starting salaries range from $60,000 - $120,000. DHS estimates that Cyber threats will explode, and proactive protection will become the standard. Maui County has a unique opportunity to take an active part in this emerging industry. It will require education, training, and certifications -- all of which can be obtained from local Maui resources. 

Gary Albitz has deep and extensive experience in International Sales, Marketing, Business Development, Product Development, Cyber Security, and IT.  He has led Computer Hardware, Software, Services, and IT programs at companies like EY, AT&T, Oracle, McAfee, Unisys, HP, Octel, and Tibco to achieve unprecedented revenue, profit and market share.
