Barclay Simpson Trends Report

It’s pretty clear that the global financial situation is on the up turn but this trend report further demonstrates how resilient the security sector is and the progress made in the last 12 months.

As security risks alter on an almost weekly basis and large FTSE 100 companies are targeted by hackers there has never been a better time to be involved in this exciting industry.

Unfortunately we are one of those specialisms that actually benefits from security breaches (in a weird but true kind of way), and this report highlights the demand for experienced practitioners. This is also reflected in the salary achieved when you moved jobs, with on average an increase of 17% achieved (compared to 14% in 2013).

All is all this is a good news story and well worth a read!
