Salaries for cybersecurity specialists are set to rise by 7% this year, according to the Robert Walters 2018 Salary Survey.

That will be the highest wage raise among IT professionals, the recruitment consultancy claimed, with the increase across all roles within IT and technology estimated to be an average of 2%. Developers and infrastructure specialists will also benefit from a higher pay increase (3%) in 2018.

This comes at a time when cybersecurity professionals are in particular demand, with a widening cyber-skills gap estimated to result in a shortage of 1.8 million professionals by 2022, according to (ISC)2’s most recent Global Information Security Workforce Study.
