New report: 12 hot markets for cybersecurity jobs

Randstad Technologies Announces 12 Markets with High Demand for Cybersecurity Talent

Atlanta – Sept. 14, 2016 – Randstad Technologies, a leading technology talent and solutions provider in the U.S., today released its “Cybersecurity Workforce Report” that reveals 12 markets with high demand for cybersecurity talent, featuring data from partner WANTED Analytics. The report reveals 12 key markets nationwide with strong demand for top-tier, enterprise-level cybersecurity talent. The demand in these markets was determined based on a combination of employers competing for talent and number of open job listings.

Randstad Technologies found correlations between regions where it has talent-placement operations nationwide and proprietary data from its partner WANTED Analytics to identify the following markets where cybersecurity talent is in high demand:

·         Atlanta

·         Austin

·         Boston

·         Chicago

·         Dallas

·         Los Angeles

·         Minneapolis

·         New York

·         Phoenix

·         San Francisco

·         Seattle

·         Washington, D.C.

 

Cybersecurity talent in industries such as healthcare, retail and finance has been highly sought after over the last several years. Randstad Technologies has seen a surge in demand nationally for cybersecurity job orders from its clients, with a year-over-year increase of 35 percent from June 2014 to June 2016. As demand has increased in these top markets, more and more companies are moving operations to emerging markets like St. Louis, Charlotte, Richmond, Nashville, Orlando and others to find top talent. 

“This data is not surprising, given that nearly every industry in today’s enterprise ecosystem could fall victim to a security breach of their IT systems,” said Dino Grigorakakis, Vice President of Recruiting at Randstad Technologies. “We are working with CIOs who now rank security and cybersecurity expertise as one of the most essential needs for their IT departments, and we are helping them attract willing and highly-qualified candidates from their own back yard.”

Randstad Technologies has seen an increase in demand consistent with a recent industry survey that found a sharp uptick in CIOs’ attention to security management. According to CIO’s 15th annual State of the CIO Survey, 46 percent of IT executives cite security management as a focus for the upcoming year, up from 31 percent in 2015, suggesting that security ranks as the top technology initiative driving IT investment.

“Securing skilled workers, particularly in IT, is getting more complex and challenging, and many decision-makers see it as one of the largest internal threats to meeting business performance targets,” said Grigorakakis. “The introduction of emerging technologies and innovations, and the threats that come with them, means the demand for technology workers with specialized skills such as security will only continue to grow.”

Randstad Technologies is one of the major players seeking and placing cybersecurity talent for companies nationwide.

Methodology: Randstad Technologies’ Cybersecurity Workforce Report - 12 Markets in High Demand for Top Talent

Randstad Technologies’ report of 12 markets with high demand for cybersecurity talent is derived from an analysis of proprietary data from Randstad Technologies and industry partner WANTED Analytics.
