Pervasive digital technologies soar demand for cybersecurity engineers
Pervasiveness of digital technologies and need for data connectivity across verticals have increased the risk of cyber-attacks thereby raising the demand for cybersecuritytalent. Companies like SingHealth (2018), Equifax (2017) and Facebook (2018) that suffered a huge data and financial loss due to the cyber security attacks have alerted their BFSI Healthcare and ICT peers to strengthen their security foundation across their digital framework.
Security development and operation engineers are the highly demanded roles across organisations to engage in security use-cases such as end-point protection, intrusion detection, and penetration testing, ethical hacking and identity management. Certifications such as Securing Cisco Networks with Threat Detection and Analysis, CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP+) are helping security engineers’ upskill to undertake niche security job roles.
