Fewer than 1 in 4 young adults have expressed an interest in pursuing a career in cybersecurity, according to a study commissioned by Raytheon that finds millennials are beginning to implement basic security measures but lack a broader knowledge of the field. The researchers blame the shortfall on a lack of engagement from older adults, with less than 20% of respondents saying they had learned about opportunities in the cybersecurity sector from teachers or guidance counselors.
