The Gurus in our Information and IT Security Team are starting to make a great impact on their industry and it’s getting recognised. Last week, team leader Chris Powell was featured in The Wall Street Journal, in an article about cyber security in the financial space. The article titled Cyber Spooks Are in Demand at Investment Banks depicts the current state of jobs within the cyber security space.
The article states: “Banks have traditionally hired specialized contractors or consultancy firms to help with these security efforts but Chris Powell, who heads the information security team at recruitment firm Digital Gurus, said banks are now looking at expanding in-house.
Mr. Powell said banks were doing their direct hiring now. The hiring is two-fold, according to headhunters and consultants: banks are looking to recruit individuals to proactively identify potential cyber threats, as well as so-called “ethical hackers” to help them run tests on their internal systems.
The demand is being driven by an increase in threats and heightened awareness among senior management at banks of the need to defend against attacks.”
It’s an exciting time for those in the cyber security and cyber intelligence space. Our Information and IT Security Team work within Cyber security, Security Audit, Incident Response, IT Risk, Governance & Control, Information Risk, CLAS, PCI DSS, QSA’s, Malware Analysis, as well as with Penetration Testers, Forensic Specialists, Security Architects, and Information Security Consultants.
