Addressing the Cyber Security Skills Shortage

Presented by

Robin Farrell, Manager, Security Operations EMEA, FireEye

About this talk

There is a common theme for public and private organisations globally: there just aren’t enough cybersecurity professionals with the skills set required to defend organisations against advanced persistent attackers. With global demand for cyber security experts forecast to outstrip supply by a third before the end of the decade, companies are struggling against this huge skills shortage. (ISC)2 predicts that companies and public sector organisations will need 6 million security professionals by 2019 but only 4.5 million will have the necessary qualifications and skill set. With countries such as the UK, increasing investment in cyber security and introducing new legislations this gap in professionals will only increase. Join this webinar, to understand the skills shortage challenge organisations are facing and how security tools alone will not be able to fix these issues. In this webinar, Robin Farrell, Manager, Security Operations EMEA at FireEye will discuss the ways to mitigate this shortage risk: - The challenge of staying ahead of the attackers with a skills gap - How ROI on security tools will reduce without the adequate skilled workforce - Adopting an adaptive defense model and the tools and techniques required - Benefits of partnering with a threat management organisation - Lessons learnt from building a SOC
