With more threats and a well-documented shortage of experts, cyber security continues to be a major issue for both big and small companies. The ever-present and ever-evolving threat from hackers has placed further importance on having a highly skilled workforce with projected demand expected to reach 6 million by 2019. However, demand is far outstripping supply with 75% of UK IT chiefs claiming that the cyber security talent shortage is making them an easier target for hackers (CSIS). The result is that Cyber Security is fast becoming the UK’s most sought after IT skills with nearly one sixth (15%) of cyber security professionals being paid at least £100,000 a year, according to global professional services consultancy Procorre.
