UK organisations face many problems when trying to source high calibre talent for their cyber security and technical delivery specialist roles.  With the cyber security unemployment rate predicted to remain at 0% until 2021, the demand for talent will only continue to increase.  Coupled with salaries in cyber security are some of the fastest growing in the UK now rising at an average of 15% a year, and 82% of UK employers of people with cyber security skills are struggling to fill roles, its not surprising organisations need a more effective cyber security recruitment solution that attracts the best professionals to them.
