IT Security Contractors are now commanding five figure daily rates, according to a tech jobs agency, prior to the growth area of cyber security crisis management.
There has been an almost quadruple jump in demand for specialist security skills from contractors, which is the sole reason behind the surge in daily rates. With recent Talk Talk hackings, the demand for higher response led roles have been implemented to tackle any future attacks.
Larger companies who do have their own in house security are thought to still intend to bring in specialist security contractors to help reinforce the teams for if and when a cyber attack happens.
It is also stated that there have been a record number of IT security contractor requests compared to 2014, meaning there is a shortage however, this does also mean that specialist IT security contractors can demand in excess of £3000 per day. With the risk factor continuing to increase, it’s predicted that contractors will continue to benefit from the higher rates.
