Cyberattacks hit companies, individuals, and universities practically on the daily. 

While the extent of the situation is still under investigation, it is a “worst case scenario,” says Scott Shackelford, executive director of the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at the University of Indiana. He says it should be a wake-up call for others as well.

“The stakes are going up,” Shackelford tells Fortune. “The lifeblood of a lot of companies are trade secrets. When you’re looking to value the S&P 500—80% wrapped up in their trade secrets—which means intellectual property is really the whole game at this point.”

Already, cybercrime is among one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history, so with increased pressure on cybersecurity across all industries, so is the demand for cyber experts with the skills to protect sensitive data, monitor networks, and check for system vulnerabilities. 

In the U.S. alone, there are more than 750,000 open cybersecurity jobs, and the open positions increased by 35% in the last year. That’s according to the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CIDA) careers and studies initiative. And with average salaries above $100,000, riding the growing cybersecurity wave could be a way to achieve career stability—and provide plenty of advancement opportunities.

In fact, Shackelford says within Indiana’s cybersecurity programs, one of the issues they are facing is frankly keeping students in the program through graduation because the jobs are so in-demand. “This has become an issue that you at least need a grounding and basic cyber hygiene just to be successful, I’d argue, in the 21st century economy,” he says.

Daniel Ostergaard is a clinical professor for international business at Darla Moore School of Business at University of South Carolina and lead faculty for the school’s cybersecurity management certificate.

He says across the board, cybersecurity skills are needed—whether you work for a 10-person dentist office or a Fortune 500 corporation. The frontlines of cybersecurity can be anywhere, and a lack of preparedness can cost millions of dollars in ransom and recovery.

And with cybersecurity not likely to be replaced by A.I. anytime soon, Ostergaard says obtaining a cybersecurity certificate is an investment well worth your time, especially with a need for millions of experts worldwide within businesses, militaries, and nonprofits.

For those interested in getting ahead, Fortune has compiled a list of business schools with cybersecurity management certificate programs—in which upon successful completion could help you become the next leader in cybersecurity.
