The proportion of beverage manufacturing and supply companies hiring for cybersecurity-related positions increased markedly last month, according to recent research, with 51.4% recruiting for at least one position in the area.
The figure, which features in GlobalData’s latest analysis, represents a leap on the 29% of drinks companies that were hiring for cybersecurity positions a year ago. In October this year, the number was 39.4%.
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.
