How can we address the cybersecurity skills gap?

October 26, 2017

This week as part of European Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we’re talking about the incredibly important issue of skills.

In our industry, about a quarter of security jobs are left unfulfilled for 6 months – unfortunately because businesses can’t find the right levels of expertise needed to fight modern cyber threats.

So, unless we as an industry do something drastically about that now, that gap is only going to get wider…as the bad guys certainly aren’t going to give us any breaks soon.

In this Facebook Live broadcast from outside the British Library, we chatted about how we do just that, and also offered advice about how businesses can better leverage the existing resource you have (or are indeed looking for) so that you can be more prepared for any unsanctioned attempts on your data.
