Thailand cybersecurity job market sees 15% growth in 10 years

Specific talents are needed by businesses in Thailand to safeguard their digital frontiers.

The cybersecurity job market in Thailand is expected to see a robust growth of 15% over the next decade, hence the need for specialized skills to combat the evolving landscape of cyber threats. 

According to Shivaji Bose, Country Head for TCS Thailand, the scope of cybersecurity has broadened significantly, driven by rapid adoption of cloud technologies and generative AI, along with stringent regulations on critical infrastructure and data sovereignty. 

"The right talent plays a pivotal role in preparing enterprises for defense in three specific areas: regulation and compliance, ecosystem protection, and predictive and anticipatory measures," Bose explained. This demand is not just about filling positions; it's about equipping the workforce with a functional understanding of these complex domains.

He said that for regulation and compliance, businesses are in dire need of professionals adept in risk assessment, management compliances, and understanding regulations like GDPR. 

Bose added that ecosystem protection calls for expertise in network, cloud, and data security. Predictive and anticipatory skills, crucial for staying ahead of threats, involve advanced threat intelligence and the application of AI in cybersecurity.

Bose also highlighted the importance of familiarity with frameworks such as NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) and ZTA (Zero Trust Architecture), which underscores the evolving ecosystem of cybersecurity tools. These skills, tailored to Thailand's unique business landscape, are essential for organizations aiming to protect their digital assets and maintain customer trust.

Discussing the disparity in the impact of cybercrime on SMEs versus large corporations, Bose pointed out that smaller businesses often lack robust cybersecurity defenses and expertise, rendering them more susceptible to attacks. 

"The financial impact of a cyber attack can be more devastating for small businesses," he said, emphasizing the importance of proactive cybersecurity measures for businesses of all sizes in Asia, including Thailand.

As for entrepreneurs eyeing the Thai market, Bose suggested that understanding the local market, culture, and regulatory environment is crucial. Strategies should include market research, localization, networking, and leveraging technology to effectively engage customers.

"Thailand holds vast opportunities for new entrepreneurs and global companies. Understanding local dynamics is key to success," he advised.
