The future of cyber-security recruitment and roles in demand
COVID-19 has caused a dramatic shift in society and the workplace with businesses having become more reliant on the digital economy.
As more companies in Singapore turn to enterprise technologies such as cloud computing, mobile devices, and cloud software, businesses across multiple sectors are coming to terms with a growing and rapidly evolving landscape of cyber-threats. Organisations are having to adopt new strategies and these rapid and necessary adoptions, partially driven by a growing number of regulations, have resulted in a spike in demand for skilled IT security staff.
Throughout the year, the growing need for highly robust cyber-security programs is expected to drive innovation and spending in several critical areas, including:
- Cloud security: Most companies now store their data in the cloud and continue to adopt cloud applications and data network upgrades to support a (semi-)remote work environment, with investments in cloud platforms, cloud telephony, messaging and teleconferencing expected to grow significantly in the next few months to years.
- Application security: With the continued rise of applications, companies are increasingly focused on protecting sensitive information and implementing tactics, such as two-step authentication and security questions to ensure company information is safe from hackers.
- Network security: With remote work having become the new normal, organisations are investing more in security technologies, such as cloud security, endpoint security, and firewalls, to prevent malicious software or other data breaches from occurring.
Top cyber-security positions in demand in Singapore:
