Unsurprisingly, salary increases continue to be highest in the financial services sector, followed by commerce and then by system integrators and consultancies.
The highest-paid permanent IT security role is a senior account manager specialising in cloud or security services within the cloud, who is responsible for between seven and 10 SME accounts. In London, a professional in this role could earn up to £160,000, or up to £150,000 in the rest of the UK.
This is followed by the enterprise business development consultant, who is responsible for new business lead generation and sales in a security consultancy. Salaries for this role range from up to £110,000 for the rest of the UK to up to £140,000 in London.
At the other end of the scale, an entry-level role of business continuity analyst working for a large financial services firm earns up to £44,000 in London and up to £41,000 in the rest of the UK.
Contractors, meanwhile, can earn the most - between £500 and £650 a day in London - as technology risk consultants, closely followed by information security consultants and CLAS consultants at between £500 and £600 per day. In the rest of the UK, all three roles see a drop to between £400 to £500 a day.
