The Cyber Security Skills Gap is Getting Wider
For any cyber security specialist who’s due a pay review, recently published threat reports make worthwhile reading. The latest annual roundup from FireEye confirms the Cyber Security Skills Gap as one of the biggest risks facing businesses. Specialists in this area are dubbed a “scarce resource” – and (assuming they know their stuff) are definitely worth hanging on to. Here, we take a closer look at what’s driving this gap – and what this means for businesses, employees and anyone who’s thinking about topping up their cyber security credentials. The research in question is the M-Trends 2018 report from FireEye subsidiary, Mandiant, based on the company’s investigations into targeted attack activity in the year up to October 2017. The message is as follows: there’s a deficit in the availability of information security personnel - and this shortage is expected to get worse over the next five years. This assertion is drawn from Mandiant’s own engagements with organisations. It’s also supported by intel from the US National Institute for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) which reported that 285,000 cyber security roles went unfilled last year in the US alone.
