Increased demand for cyber security roles
Demand for cyber security roles is set to boom this year, following several high-profile cyberattacks, research has found. 81% of businesses predict a “significant” increase in cyber security hires next year.
Cyber security threats have never been more pervasive and with many businesses operating digitally, the risk and responsibility of safeguarding can no longer be incumbent on IT. Several high-profile cyberattacks occurred this year, including at Uber, Equifax, the NHS and Westminster, which has prompted leaders to re-examine their security strategies.
