Cybersecurity – A Smart Choice for Tech-Savvy Gen Z

Cybersecurity – A Smart Choice for Tech-Savvy Gen Z

The imminent global economic downturn is expected to lead to ongoing workforce layoffs. Despite this, the field of information security and cybersecurity continues to assert its leading position in the digital age. This will be the top choice for the Z generation to pursue their career.

The demand for security and cybersecurity professionals is strong even in the face of an economic recession.

A study by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC2), cited by CNBC, of 1,000 CEOs from five countries — Germany, Japan, Singapore, the UK, and the US — found that nearly half of CEOs expect to lay off employees due to an anticipated recession this year. However, compared to the average of 20% in other sectors, only 10% of organizations are likely to cut jobs in the cybersecurity field.

In Singapore alone, 68% of organizations strongly believe that layoffs are necessary when the economy slows down. However, only 15% are likely to cut jobs in the cybersecurity field, compared to other industries such as human resources (32%) and marketing (28%).Latest LinkedIn job data shows that cybersecurity engineers and security consultants are among the most in-demand roles this year.

Pooja Chhabria, Regional Editorial Director for Asia-Pacific at LinkedIn, said that the growing threat of cyber threats is also a major reason for the higher demand for cybersecurity professionals. The number of cyberattacks has increased in recent years due to political issues and the trend of remote working caused by the pandemic.

This is why 42% of cybersecurity companies surveyed said they would hire more staff. This is also the highest number in all industries, despite the economic difficulties this year. However, the cybersecurity industry is not immune to dissenting opinions. A Citi survey in November 2022 of top technology leaders found that expected IT budgets in general are only expected to increase by 1.8% in the next 12 months, down sharply from 5.6% in the survey in September 2021.

However, cybersecurity remains a “top priority with a large magnitude” among the areas classified under information technology, Citi added.
