Who will secure your organisation in the future?


Cyber-security professionals are predicted to become a ‘must have’ resource for UK organisations in the next few years1. Following the extraordinary increase in Internet usage globally over the past 15 years, from 16 million users in 1995 to more than 1.7 billion in 2012, Internet traffic is currently growing at the rate of 60% per year. This will increase our reliance on networked systems, bringing with it an increased vulnerability to the intentional disruption of such systems for political or individual

gain. It is anticipated that the UK’s cyber-security personnel will be critical because of the role that they will play in protecting money and assets, defending intellectual property, and protecting privacy in online environments.

Having the right cyber-security talent in place is going to be critical for organisations in the future. At QinetiQ we take recruitment of our own Information Security professionals very seriously. Our employees are working with some of the most complex systems and organisations in the world, where security vulnerabilities can lead to a loss of life, valuable assets,

or critical intellectual property. It is essential that they have the necessary skills, behaviours and attitudes to maintain

a robust defence against current and emerging threats from cyberspace. We’re already planning for this talent shortfall

and we’d like to show you how we can spot the talent of the future.
