Cyber security workers’ salaries could rise by 7% in 2018: Report

Average salaries of cyber security workers in the UK could rise by 7 percent this year, much higher than those of developers and infrastructure staff, a survey has revealed.

Large-scale data breaches and a huge rise in the number of ransomware attacks are forcing companies to hire fresh cyber security workers and to incentivise existing staff.

A recent report by recruitment consultancy Robert Walters has revealed that salaries of cyber security workers, developers and other IT staff would rise this year, even as recruiters are looking to hire professionals with added talents like good communication and project management skills.
