Of all advertised vacancies in the beverage industry in November, 1% were linked to cybersecurity, a rise on the 0.7% proportion in the same month last year.

The analysis shows, however, that beverage companies are hiring for cybersecurity jobs at a lower rate than the average for all companies within GlobalData's job analytics database. The average among all companies stood at 2.5% in November.



Cybersecurity is one of the topics that GlobalData has identified as a key disruptive force facing industry in the coming years. Companies 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 vacancies 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.
