Cybersecurity is one of the most important issues facing Australia today. The Australian Defence Force and the defence industry are on the front line of this battle, and they need skilled cybersecurity professionals to help them protect our country.
The cyber sector looks set to take out the title of sector to experience the most significant growth over the next decade. With the announcement of Project REDSPICE comes a $9.9 billion investment to bolster the Commonwealth’s offensive cyber capabilities and its detection and response network.
The cyber talent pool will need to grow significantly over the coming years to respond to this growth strategy. It is crucial to understand what the candidate market looks like now so that jobseekers make the best-informed career decisions, and hiring managers make smart hiring decisions.
GATEWAY SYNERGY research suggests that there are many different types of cyber jobs available in Australia with the below data informing us, the ACT, which traditionally houses the majority of ICT workers, holds just 1,300 workers, 7% of the population. Just 19% of the cyber workforce are women in ACT, compared to 23% in VIC and NSW, and 22% nationally.
Demand for cyber skill sets is high across NSW, VIC, ACT and QLD but only moderate in WA and SA. The proportion of cyber professionals who work in the defence industry is just 2%. This is in comparison to 34% who work in the Information Technology & Services industry.
