In the May edition of the report co-produced by Vacancysoft and Oliver James Associates we focus on IT security vacancies in the Financial Services industry. A recent Annual Global Fraud and Risk Report from Kroll found that 92% of UK firms suffered a cyber-attack or information loss in the last 12 months but with companies worldwide being reluctant to spend more on cyber-security, how have vacancy patterns changed over the last 24 months? Which regions, and which sub-regions, have seen growth in vacancies for IT security staff? Demand for which IT security sub-specialisms has gone up the most? And for which has it fallen? Which companies had the best growth 12-month period on 12-month period? And which saw the largest falls in vacancies? The answers to all of those questions and more are in this report.
