A research report claims that, at present, the requirement of trained IT security professionals is high in Australia since the nation’s information and communications technology segment is witnessing solid growth. The same arrives at a time when new job announcements as a whole are growing --up 5.7% in the month of February, vis-à-vis the similar time in 2015.
Propelling the rise are the Eastern states in Down Under with robust year on year increase even while New South Wales (NSW) and Victoria are the two major employing states, and are up 11.6% and 6.8% in that order.
The report also indicates that Queensland has revealed rather promising indications of bouncing back from the mining recession with new employment commercials up 3.9% over the 12 months and South Australia (SA) is up 7.7%. Importantly, Tasmania and ACT also registered robust year on year growth--up 10.7% & 26.3% correspondingly.
Allegedly, it is heartening to find robust year on year growth through roughly every Australian state & territory, and also that the growth is propelled through a wide variety of businesses. Roughly 24 out of 28 businesses witnessed increases in job promotion over the previous 12 months.
However, some specific segments have seen growth in announcement head north, most remarkably the banking and financial services segment down 9% year on year, mining, resources and energy down 7%, insurance down 6% and accounting no improvement.
The ICT industry keeps on being rather strong all over the country, witnessing 10% year on year growth to February 2016 and, even while at a state level, the improvement in employment advertisements in the ICT sector reveals the general shape of the employment market on a national scale.
It is also asserted that Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland, ACT and New South Wales (NSW) all saw double digit growth in ICT the job announcements. The NSW, which has the largest figure of job-openings advertised, headed north by 10% year on year. At present, there are more than 7,500 ICT openings publicized through the NSW, which is incredible for those interested in work in that business.
The report reveals that at a national level there has been tremendously impressive year on year increase in the requirement for the IT Security experts, up 57%, even as Technical Writers requirement is up 47%, and Product Managers and Developers up 42%.
As per another concerned person, the key reason behind increase in the IT security employment listings can be refined artificial intelligence & the unparalleled uptake of cloud computing during the past 12 months by Australian businesses, stimulating a requirement for professionals, to keep networks safe and protected.
He also elucidated that against the backdrop of firms/organizations increasing their offerings to fulfill customer web & mobility needs--together with the advancement made in devices with artificial intelligence capabilities--it is presently more crucial than before to be able to foresee the level of sophistication achievable, in the matters of cybercrimes.
