Information Security - Market Report 2012

Download / view PDF

The outlook for the information security market in 2012 is as ever dependent on the wider economy. Whilst information security is showing signs of being more resilient than other areas of corporate governance, should the economy deteriorate further, it inevitably will suffer from company wide recruitment and headcount freezes. However we believe that it is the commercial rather than financial sector that will drive demand for information security practitioners during 2012.

  • New vacancies from our sample companies fell from 53 in the first half of 2011 to 48 in the second half of 2011.
  • The number of information security practitioners accepting new positions in the second half of 2011 was 29% below the peak achieved in the second half of 2010.
  • Salary increases achieved by information security practitioners fell back from 13% in the first half of 2011 to 9% in the second half.
