Following news about the City of London Police recruiting computer science grads to fight against cybercrime, Ilia Kolochenko, CEO at High-Tech Bridge commented below.
Ilia Kolochenko, CEO at High-Tech Bridge:
“This is a great news reaffirming UK’s cybersecurity leadership in Europe. Many EU countries cannot afford even the fundamental resources and people to investigate and prosecute cybercrime. UK gives a laudable example everyone should follow. However, we should not forget that cybercrime investigation is first of all based on practical experience, not on a university degree. Thus, retaining experienced professionals will likely be quite costly as large companies are ready to pay them very competitive salaries. Retention of talents will be a challenge.”
