US based cyber-security firm Imperva has announced plans to create 220 new jobs in Belfast. The company will set up a new base in the city with the help of investment from Invest NI, who have given a grant of 1.4 million GBP (€1.55 million). The jobs will mean that in total there will be over 1,500 people employed in the cyber-security sector in Northern Ireland, whereas ten years previously the figure stood at 100. It is expected that it will take between three and five years for all the new jobs to be filled.
