Cyber security job placements increase as demand in Singapore heightens
As the world becomes more digitally connected, cyber attacks will continue with greater frequency and severity. Governments, corporations and consumers will continue to need protection from cyber security threats.
With government initiatives set to open more doors for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) professionals than before, abundant employment opportunities await job seekers in the ICT sector.
As companies make headway in their digitalisation journey, they will increasingly need a skilled ICT workforce to propel their growth. IT jobs are attracting not only younger professionals but mid-career professionals who are looking to grow their skills and make a transition as well.
In the wake of data breaches across critical services sectors and digitalisation, companies are strengthening their internal capabilities to counteract the cyber risks and vulnerabilities. This has led to an increase in the demand for well-trained cyber security professionals with excellent problem-solving skills and critical thinking abilities backed by strong ICT fundamentals.
At the same time, Singapore is arming itself with a new generation of cyber security professionals to counter these rising threats. Over the next half-decade, Singapore will invest $30 million into the ASEAN-Singapore Cyber Security Centre of Excellence to deepen the region’s cyber capabilities through the training of national emergency response teams2.
