The proportion of beverage companies hiring for ‘cybersecurity’-related positions remained steady last month, according to recently-released figures.
A total of 38.7% of the companies included in GlobalData’s analysis were recruiting for at least one position in the area in February. The figure matches the level for cybersecurity-related jobs a year earlier. In January this year, the rate was slightly higher, at 44.1%.
Of all advertised vacancies in the global beverage industry in February, 2.2% were linked to cybersecurity, the highest monthly figure recorded in the past year and an increase compared to the 1% rate in the same month of 2021.
However, beverage companies are hiring for cybersecurity jobs at a lower rate than the average for all companies in GlobalData’s job analytics database, which stood at 3.1% in February.
Cybersecurity is one of the topics that GlobalData has identified as a key disruptive force facing companies in the coming years. Those that are investing in these areas now are considered to be better prepared for the future business landscape.
GlobalData's job analytics database tracks the daily hiring patterns of companies worldwide, drawing in jobs as they're posted and tagging them with additional layers of data, from the seniority of each position to whether a job is linked to wider industry trends.
