The UK Government has stated Cyber Security to be a national priority and the topic is rapidly becoming a Board level priority as firms are under continued pressure to protect not only their businesses, but also us, the consumer. No industry is immune, no country is immune. In 2016, 52% of British businesses fell victim to some sort of Cyber related crime; data theft being the most concerning.
The Cyber Security sector continues to proliferate and the appetite to protect UK business is in a healthy state. Much has been published about the difficulty of identifying and hiring world-class deep technical talent. Companies are being forced to be more creative in their talent acquisition strategies, introducing initiatives such as skills transitioning training, and partnering agreements with academia. Though this activity remains vitally important, the key success of these firms still remains with the board and their leadership teams.
