Cybersecurity concerns are fueling large investments by companies reacting to constant security threats worldwide. This will translate into new career opportunities for in-house legal IT professionals, new companies popping up to provide new solutions to security risks, and growth in this sector within established firms.
According to Gartner, worldwide spending on Security will increase 8% in 2018 over last year to approximately $96 Billion this year. That is close to $7 Billion dollars in increased spending which will undoubtedly increase the demand for many kinds of employees who possess specialized skills including software programmers, project managers, sales and marketing executives, and support staff.
Flashback to 2005: when the fledgling Electronic Data Discovery, or EDD industry (we now call it eDiscovery) was experiencing major growth and there were simply not enough people out there with the experience in that fledgling field to staff all the open positions. Managers simply could not find staff who could meet their open positions and relied upon recruiters to fill their requirements. As Executive Recruiters, we had to identify prospects in related fields who had enough of the right knowledge and contacts to quickly transition into eDiscovery and hit the ground running. Many of the most successful candidates made the transition from related fields such as legal document copy/scanning operations and legal research firms.
