Overpaid/underpaid roles in cyber security?

Cyber security is a big umbrella term for the different types of work people do in the even larger umbrella of Information Security. I understand that there are different fields (and subfields) within the domain of cyber security, and that each of these fields can potentially contain several roles each. So basically, there are lots of different roles in cyber security!

Ignoring differences in people’s experience and location (between one entry level role to another, or one mid level role to another, etc.), is compensation awarded based on how much value a role adds to the company, or does hype and perceived value over-inflate some salaries in the short term (defined as 1-3 years in this question)?

For example, Blockchain developer demand was increasing by over one thousand percent in late 2017, but since then, it has gradually leveled off to a reasonable level. During the time demand surged, salaries surged as well. I’d assume cyber security is subject to some of the same “fads” and “hype” that every other industry experiences.

All that being said, what are some of the roles that you think are overpaid/underpaid right now in the short term? I’d love to hear what you guys think!
