Cyber Security Market Insights

The increase of digital banking and the exponential growth of customer data repositories have rendered financial services firms particularly vulnerable to attacks. In 2022, the global rate of ransomware attacks within the sector stood at 55%, escalating to 64% in 2023—a significant surge from the 34% reported in 2021.

These statistics underscore the urgent need for organisations to reinforce their cyber security defences and invest in top-tier talent capable of mitigating evolving threats effectively.

Over the next four years, the shortfall of qualified cyber security professionals is forecast to hit up to 30,000 unfilled positions across Australia. The shortage of cybersecurity skills is a pressing concern with tangible effects. In 2023, 71% of CISOs acknowledged its impact on their organisations. This shortage directly affects CISOs, with approximately one-third noting significant repercussions such as increased workloads, elevated rates of employee burnout, and prolonged job vacancies.

As a leading recruitment firm specialising in cyber security talent acquisition across the APAC region, JS Careers is dedicated to providing comprehensive insights into the evolving landscape of cyber security recruitment. Our commitment to staying on top of industry trends ensures that both employers and candidates have access to timely and relevant information to navigate the dynamic cyber security market effectively.

What's happening in the cyber market?

High demand but low supply of talent

Recent high-profile cyber breaches have led to a surge in demand for specialised talent across the globe. Our clients are witnessing an unprecedented increase in demand and are actively seeking to build their cyber teams and defences. However, despite the growing need, appropriately qualified applicants are hard to come by. More than half of business leaders in Australia and New Zealand expressed that cyber security job applicants are not appropriately qualified for the skills in demand.

What skill sets are employers looking for?

  • Senior and specialist cyber security roles are the most challenging to fill, particularly those requiring a blend of technical expertise, commercial acumen, and strong business insight.
  • Cyber security professionals adept in cloud security, endpoint security, security operations centre (SOC) management, and penetration testing are highly sought after.
  • Individuals proficient in threat intelligence, AI security, and governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) consulting are in high demand due to evolving cyber security threats and regulatory requirements.
