There is a very prevalent human factor to the success of cyber security; behind the technology lies a team of professionals with a range of technical and specialist skills used to implement defense and proactive hunting strategies. While technology has a big part to play in the war against cyber attacks, it is the human element which is both the catalyst for attack and defense.
There are an estimated 3.5 million unfilled cyber security positions forecasted for 2021 and research suggests it’s only getting worse. Security leaders must spend far too much time finding, hiring and retaining staff. When leaders cannot find appropriately skilled talent, they are often forced to hire junior employees. Less experienced and untested staff can dramatically increase the risk of a cyber breach.
Join this webinar as our executives discuss the cyber security skills crisis in line with the evolving threat landscape and near- and longer-term options to mitigate the risk of a security breach.
