In a 2017 global workforce study, (ISC)2 estimated there will be a 1.8 million gap in the information security workforce by 2022. As this demand for information security personnel increases, Colorado remains one of the top hubs for cybersecurity. The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) estimates there are approximately 10,000 open cybersecurity positions in Colorado, 9,299 of which are in the Denver-Aurora -Lakewood and Colorado Springs areas, the regions served by Arapahoe Community College (ACC).
