We’re almost halfway through this year and, like around the same time during last year, we thought it would be interesting to go a bit deeper into the analytics part of running on infosec-jobs.com job board – in the most privacy-focused way for our users, of course. So here we have our new list with the
10 most in-demand job titles in InfoSec/Cyber in June ’22:
1. Security Engineer
2. Application Security Engineer
3. Cloud Security Engineer
4. Cybersecurity Researcher
5. DevSecOps Engineer
6. Security Analyst
7. Information Security Analyst
8. Product Security Engineer
9. Information Security Engineer
10. Cloud Security Architect
Job title comparison: 2022 to 2021
Demand for security engineers stands firm this year being still at the top. An interesting observation is the rise of cloud security roles while cloud security architecture declined quite a bit. Furthermore, it seems like there is more demand for security analysts this year.

InfoSec/Cybersec job title raking and change comparison between 2022 and 2021
Our “methodology” here is still quite simple: we’re primarily counting the occurrence of job titles over the last 12 months globally, cleaned and adjusted for certain specialities that some companies like to do, e.g. inventing their own stuff that’s not being used by anyone else or adding crazy super-specific details to a job title. We also left out many titles with indicators regarding seniority or other requirements as we already have dedicated attributes for these.
