SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IT security jobs are in high demand. According to the Cybersecurity Market Report, more than 209,000 cybersecurity jobs in the U.S. are unfilled, and postings are up 74% over the past five years. To assist companies in their search to find talented security professionals, UBM Tech today announced the launch of the Dark Reading Job Board (jobs.darkreading.com).

Dark Reading

The Dark Reading Job Board helps employers reach a robust database of security professionals with varying levels of experience. In addition, it helps security professionals find positions by job type and employer and also offers recruitment tools integrated with trusted content. This new career resource now allows Dark Reading to serve as a trusted resource for security recruitment.

"As the number and sophistication of cyber attacks increases, so does the demand for IT security professionals. This growing requirement is leading to more jobs and better salaries," said Tim Wilson, Editor in Chief and co-founder of Dark Reading. "As the security industry's top destination for news and insights, we've created the Dark Reading Job Board to help close the security workforce gap."

Additional security career resources include:
