Massachusetts is a national leader in cybersecurity practices and systems and has opportunities to support data and networks in both the private and public sectors.

As the private and public sectors increasingly interact with constituents and customers in a digital format, there is a growing demand for skilled IT professionals to develop, implement, and support these services and protect networks and data. 

Home to some of the nation’s top universities and tech companies, Massachusetts is leading the way in using state-of-the-art tools and techniques to protect networks, data, and critical functions from those who would steal, damage, or misuse them.

Cybersecurity jobs with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

In Massachusetts, state government is truly a digital business. To support vital functions, a dedicated and diverse team of more than 1,500 mission-driven IT professionals across 150 agencies do work that touches virtually every aspect of our lives. 

Among these organizations is the Executive Office of Technology Services and Security (EOTSS), which is looking for professionals from a range of experience levels to support these functions and make the Commonwealth a better place to provide services and do business online.

Advanced Cyber Security Center

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is a founding member of the Advanced Cyber Security Center (ACSC), a regional nonprofit, cross-sector organization that is committed to strengthening its members' cyber defenses and preparing New England to respond to large-scale cyber threats as a national leader in “Collaborative Defense.”  

Working with EOTSS will mean regularly collaborating on cybersecurity best practices with leading private sector firms, universities, defense nonprofits, and the Department of Homeland Security.


The MassCyberCenter was launched in 2017 with the goal of enhancing opportunities for the state’s cybersecurity ecosystem to ensure the Commonwealth would remain a national leader and to strengthen the resiliency of Massachusetts’ public and private communities.
