The average indicator for commercial and state-owned firms in other regions of Russia is 65 thousand rubles. and 40 thousand rubles. respectively.

Software development and analytics offer average salaries that are 42% and 25% higher, respectively, than information security.

Low wages in the public sector, one of the main employers in this field, also do not attract the attention of specialists.
