Explore the CyberSeek tool at

Visualizing the need for and supply of cybersecurity workers across the country, a Cybersecurity Jobs Heat Map, CyberSeek, has been developed by CompTIA in partnership with Burning Glass Technologies. The tool provides data to help employers, job seekers, policy makers, training providers, and guidance counselors meet today’s increasing demand. When the tool was first launched in 2016, CyberSeek unveiled information on the supply of workers with relevant credentials and career pathways in cybersecurity that map opportunities for advancement in the field.

In the Fall of 2019, NICE, CompTIA, and Burning Glass Technologies announced that the CyberSeek tool would be expanded to tackle the increasingly critical problem of cybersecurity skills gaps and worker shortages. Enhancements will be made to be able to retrieve even more information at the national, state, and metro levels and in the private and public sector.
