Berlin, Germany -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2020 -- This year has seen a drastic increase in the demand for cyber security professionals, largely due to the move from professionals working in office to working from home. Companies have had to invest heavily in cyber security procedures to ensure business critical information is protected during the work from home period which is set to last longer than anyone could have anticipated. This is a positive sign for cyber security professionals looking for career growth potential as the sector has an estimated 37% job growth increase every year for the next two years. Glocomms are highly aware of this demand and have been working with a skilled network of professionals to ensure clients and individuals are updated and informed on the industry changes during the current climate.
Technological advances and the new digital age have seen a huge increase in the use of technology across the world in a plethora of situations; spanning both work and home life. The acceleration of this usage has brought a wave of cybercrime, as cyber hackers have been infiltrating corporate and personal systems to steal data and risk businesses security. Business professionals are right to be wary of the consequences of a lack of cyber security being available, this is why the demand for ambitious individuals are vital for many companies to stay protected, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic when so many other environmental and social factors are a cause for concern. In the first six months of 2019, there were eight substantial data breaches which resulted in 3.2 billion records being compromised. The damages caused by cybercrime are estimated to be over $400bn per year, a huge dent in the global economy. Companies in Germany and worldwide understand the necessity of cyber security professionals to guarantee data protection and to reduce the cost cybercrime amounts to.
