As India rolls out 5G, demand for cybersecurity is likely to increase as well.

There is already a talent mismatch of 25.5 per cent in security between August 2019 to August 2022, and the launch of 5G services will trigger a major spike in security-related jobs, the report said.

"There will be an increased need for skilled talent that can design security systems and strengthen network architectures to adapt to the new technology," said Chand.

The pandemic fast-tracked the requirement for robust cybersecurity practices as companies became remote, more devices were online, digital payments were rising, and security issues were at an all-time high.

The data showed that job postings for "cybersecurity" have grown 81 per cent between August 2019 to August 2022.
