More and more businesses of all shapes and sizes are becoming aware of the dangers of their information technology falling into the wrong hands. Whether it be a cyber-attack on their hardware, software or simply theft of certain information, organisations want to limit their risk to such attacks and the awareness of these risks is growing at an ever-increasing pace.

At Ingenio Global, it’s recognised that the difficulty for plenty of businesses, particularly more traditional, perhaps even old-fashioned, organisations is that they don’t have the immediate knowhow to tackle the risk. As a result, the demand for people who do possess the requisite knowledge and for suppliers who can provide that service with the right technical people is on the rise. All of this bodes well for those looking for roles in the cyber security job market.

For anyone who has the right technical ability and skills, things are definitely on the up. Not only is the demand for people who work in cyber security increasing exponentially, but the area itself offers a wide range of opportunities in differing positions rather than being restricted to one specific type of job. Positions can range from the analysis and investigation of a particular element of an information system that requires protection to the design and implementation of an entire security system. Likewise, there are roles that require detailed and bespoke knowhow of a system or its individual components as well as roles which require the ability to take a holistic approach, managing a team of specialists to achieve the right outcome. Ingenio Global know the variations don’t stop there, having placed candidates with in-house teams or external suppliers to organisations.

The fact is that cyber security offers an exciting, growing and very flexible role to the right candidate. Knowing who to place where based on technical knowledge and personal characteristics is a skill in itself, one that is offered by Ingenio Global.
