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 2020 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.

  • Anti-Virus

The Future for Smart Cities

With a global population explosion underway and increasing numbers of people migrating to urban centres, some argue that cities will have to get smarter or face collapse.  Which is why, according to industry analysts, the “smart city” will represent a $39.5bn (£25.1bn) marketplace by 2016.

Whole new cities, such as Songdo in South Korea, have already been constructed according to this template. Its buildings have automatic climate control and computerised access; its roads and water, waste and electricity systems are dense with electronic sensors to enable the city’s brain to track and respond to the movement of residents. But such places retain an eerie and half-finished feel to visitors – which perhaps shouldn’t be altogether surprising.

Cyber Security - Threats and Budgets Growing Exponentially

Commitment to combating the ever morphing security threats across industry, not least fuelled by the high profile attacks on the likes of Sony Pictures and Home Depot, is gathering serious pace.  cyber security start-ups raised more than $1bn for the first time in a single quarter - up from $540m for the first three months of last year and almost double the same period of 2014, according to data from private company research firm PrivCo.  Four years ago, total annual funding was less than $1bn.

Job Growth in UK Technology Sector Outstrips National Average

The Tech Monitor UK report has found employment in technology companies is much stronger than the UK-wide employment trend.

The new report by KPMG and Markit on the UK technology sector has used 10 years’ worth of data from the UK Tech Sector Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), up until August 2013, to identify the main UK tech clusters, job hiring trends and how confident UK tech companies are in their business outlook for the next 12 months.
