Enterprise security is no longer just an IT concern; it is also becoming a business concern. Recent attacks on some big companies indicate how these attacks not only create a huge financial dent, but can also tarnish the reputation of the company.

According to a new analysis of Dice salary data, that need has translated into salaries for certain tech professionals that greatly exceed the baseline for tech-pro salaries.
Lead Software Security Engineers, Directors of Security, Security Consultants and others tasked with repelling cyber-threats can expect to earn six-figure salaries per year—so long as their skills, experience and certifications prove to be a match for very demanding roles that are continuously evolving.
