Cyber attacks drive demand for network security staff

Is this just another knee-jerk reaction? It didn't take long for the online schools to jump on it, though. I saw an ad on CNN this morning stating 60,000 new security jobs, and urging people to enroll today to qualify for one of them. This seems like a lot of jobs. If true, the hacker community is doing more to generate new jobs than Congress or US business. It may not make systems any safer, but more people at work is a good thing.
