 Cyber Security Career Big in Texas - QuickCert IT Training

Not everything is bigger in Texas – a low cost of living is one of the key reasons San Antonio and other Texas cities rise to the top of the ʻbest places to live and workʼ lists. In Forbesʼ recently-released best cities for good jobs report, Texas was home to five of the top 10 cities for jobs, with San Antonio ranking sixth.

In the IT Career World however, Texas is HUGE! As home to three military installations – Lackland and Randolph Air Force bases and the Armyʼs Fort Sam Houston – the defense industry is strong, and the IT sector is growing. IT and cyber business had a $10 billion economic impact in San Antonio in 2010, and that number is expected to grow to $15 billion by 2015, according to the Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce.

San Antonio is home to the 24th Air Force, also known as Air Force Cyber Command, located at Lackland Air Force Base. In January the U.S. Air Force announced it was looking to hire 1,000 new cyber positions as a part of the 24th Air Force, in addition to the 6,000 it already oversees. Lackland also houses the Texas Cryptology Center, a National Security Agency data center and campus that employs more than 2,000.

Texas – and San Antonio, specifically – make a strong case for businesses in the region, offering secure telecom, low electricity costs and attractive tax incentives. San Antonio is home to approximately 80 Defense Technology Companies.
