An analysis by cyber security training facility Crucial Academy has found that Manchester is one of the best cities in the UK for cyber security professionals. It was placed fifth in a league table, which analysed salary, affordability, job availability and tech sector growth potential. Other cities that made the list are Edinburgh, Cardiff, Reading, and Leeds.
Neil Williams, CEO of Crucial Academy, said: "The cyber security skills gap is a growing issue across the UK.
"Every city in the ranking is a tech hub within its own right, however, it is fascinating to see which cities, based on these factors, may be more attractive to the much-needed talent pool of cyber security professionals.”
Tom Marcus, former MI5 spy who partners with Crucial Academy,said: “Cyber security is one of the most serious issues UK business faces today.
"For young people leaving education, ex-military people looking to transition to civilian life or those looking for a career change, there is no career no more Brexit-proof than cyber security.”
