Brexit Upsets Hiring and Increases Skills Shortage
Dan Raywood | February 20, 2018
Brexit is discouraging people from coming to the UK, and that is making hiring more challenging. In a panel at the TEISS conference in London, speakers from Barclays, Publicis Groupe, Global Cyber Alliance and the National Cyber Crime Unit, gathered to discuss the subject of Brexit in terms of sharing intelligence. Andy Bates, executive director UK & Europe at the Global Cyber Alliance, said that data sharing has to continue, and “we do not want Brexit to distract us,” while Thom Langford, CISO of Publicis Groupe, said that if you do not have a mature threat intelligence program, Brexit will make no difference. Paul Edmunds, head of technology at the National Cyber Crime Unit, added that data can be shared “in a consistent manner” and with GDPR offering a new regulatory environment, there will be different data and different approaches.
