Burning Glass conducts daily reviews of job postings across 32,000 online sites.

The scarcity of cybersecurity workers means that the job candidates "hold all the cards," said Kathy Lavinder, executive director of SI Placement, a Bethesda-based recruiting firm that specializes in placement for information security jobs. Because of that, "The compensation piece is the one piece where employers know they...
