10. CompTIA Security+

According to Global Knowledge, holders of the CompTIA Security+ Certificate brought in an average salary of $84,011, down from $87,666 last year.

This certification confirms a user can not only apply knowledge of security concepts, tools, and procedures to react to security incidents, but can also anticipate security risks and guard against them. The foundation-level, vendor-neutral certification is an ideal first step for aspiring cybersecurity experts, according to CompTIA.

The certification requires that users demonstrate competency in: network security; compliance and operational security; threats and vulnerabilities; application, data, and host security; access control and identity management; and cryptography. Candidates are required to have at least two years of experience as an IT administrator with a focus on security and have day-to-day security experience.

More than 900 North American respondents told Global Knowledge that they hold the Security+ certificate.
