By Patrick Scott

The proportion of healthcare operations companies hiring for cybersecurity related positions dropped in August 2021, with 26.1% of the companies included in our analysis recruiting for at least one such position.

This latest figure was lower than the 30.4% of companies who were hiring for cybersecurity related jobs in July 2021 and a decrease compared to the figure of 32.6% for the equivalent month last year.

When it came to the proportion of all job openings that were linked to cybersecurity, related job postings kept steady in August 2021, with 0.1% of newly posted job advertisements being linked to the topic.

This latest figure was the highest monthly figure recorded in the past year and is the same as the 0.1% of newly advertised jobs that were linked to cybersecurity in the equivlent month a year ago.

Cybersecurity is one of the topics that GlobalData, from whom our data for this article is taken, have identified as being a key disruptive force facing companies in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas now are thought to be better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to survive unforseen challenges.
