Asia-Pacific is seeing a hiring boom in airport industry cybersecurity roles
We've analysed the largest airport equipment and technologies companies tracked by GlobalData to see which have had the biggest recruitment drives recently.
Asia-Pacific was the fastest growing region for cybersecurity hiring among airport industry companies in the three months ending September.
The number of roles in Asia-Pacific made up 14.3% of total cybersecurity jobs – up from 11.9% in the same quarter last year.
That was followed by Europe, which saw a -1.2% year-on-year change in cybersecurity roles.
The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track 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".
By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels, and where the market is expanding and contracting.
