Cyber Security Recruitment

Central to RWA’s reputation as a leading cyber security Recruitment consultancy has been our work partnering with pioneering, often best-of-class clients recruiting top drawer cyber security / information security professionals.   Further, in 2016 the nature of such work now dovetails seamlessly with separate RWA technology specialisms within mobile payments, smartphone security, mobile device forensics, home automation etc.

Since 1987 leading IT security companies such as Clearswift, McAfee, Oracle-Secerno, Gotham Digital Science and Osirium have recruited business critical engineers and specialist cyber security professionals through RWA campaigns.  cyber security remains a key element of RWA’s package of interconnected target sectors and is at the very heart of what we do - day in day out!

Recent record levels of funding were spurred by ramped-up corporate spending and predictions that smartphone security was becoming a serious problem for companies whose employees deal in sensitive data from their mobiles. This growth in cyber threats and IT security budgets has led to a rise in the number of cyber security jobs. 

RWA’s network of contacts means we are well placed to fill your new IT security job openings - or find your next security career opportunity.

Our impressive track record of identifying talented security professionals covers these areas:

  • Anti-Virus
  • Digital Forensics
  • Vulnerability Detection
  • Intrusion Detection
  • Fraud Prevention
  • Penetration Testing
  • Cryptography and encryption

AI’s Impact on UK Jobs In The Future #2

The CBI is calling on the government to establish a joint commission tasked with examining the impact of AI on people and jobs across all sectors of the UK economy.

Based on research it conducted into the way that technology is changing the way we live and work, the CBI said recently that it had identified three technologies - AI, Blockchain and the Internet of Things - that are set to move from the fringes to the mainstream within the next five years.

However, it also found, that only a third of businesses currently have the skills and capabilities needed to adopt AI technologies, and that more needs to be done to help prepare those companies for the future.

UK Tech Start-up Landscape - Autumn 2017

Not only has the decision to leave the European Union not dented London’s start-up scene, it seems to have actually widened its lead as Europe’s leading fundraising destination.

According to a report from CB Insights, U.K. start-ups attracted $3.02 billion in venture capital in the third quarter. That’s a bit below the peak reached in Q4 2016, when U.K. start-ups attracted $3.5 billion.  But it’s more than triple the amount raised one year ago, and the third straight quarter-over-quarter increase.  The positive results were driven by six companies that raised rounds larger than $100 million in the quarter. 

AI and Cyber Security - Grave New World

The recent cyber attack on organisations around the world, including our very own NHS, has been in the minds of professionals for a long time yet nonetheless for many others has clearly been something of a wake-up call. In the near future, as artificial intelligence (AI) systems become more capable, we will begin to see more automated and increasingly sophisticated social engineering attacks. 

The rise of AI-enabled cyberattacks is expected to cause an explosion of network penetrations, personal data thefts, and an epidemic-level spread of intelligent computer viruses. Ironically, perhaps our best hope to defend against AI-enabled hacking is by using AI.  Yet this is very likely to lead to an AI arms race, the consequences of which potentially may be catastrophic in the long term, especially as big government actors join the cyber wars.
