Europe sees hiring jump in apparel cybersecurity roles

Europe was the fastest growing region for cybersecurity hiring among apparel industry companies in the three months ending July.

By Data Journalism Team

The number of roles in Europe made up 23.5% of total cybersecurity jobs, up from 11.9% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by North America, which saw a 1.9 year-on-year percentage point change in cybersecurity roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include cybersecurity, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

Tracking them across job advertisements allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels, and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for cybersecurity job ads in the apparel industry?

The fastest growing country was France, which saw 7.5% of all cybersecurity job adverts in the three months ending July 2021, increasing to 14% in the three months ending July this year.

The top country for cybersecurity roles in the apparel industry is the United States which saw 68.4% of all roles advertised in the three months ending July.

Which cities and locations are the biggest hubs for cybersecurity workers in the apparel industry?
