IT salary trends

Here are three key areas impacting Japan IT salary trends:

1
The heightened focus on cyber-security is driving strong demand for experts in ransomware, DDoS and targeted attacks, as well as ethical hackers to pinpoint vulnerabilities in critical business systems and infrastructure.
2
As more companies look to modernise their payments infrastructure, demand is surging for talented software engineers and project managers, along with IT security specialists with skills in threat identification, security protocols and encryption.
3
A shortage of candidates with skills, qualifications and experience in key areas of digitisation, including AI, cloud computing, cyber-security, compliance and data analytics, is set to continue in 2020.
