The Widening Cybersecurity Workforce Gap

Dateline: May 26, 2017

Welcome to our Friday WRAP – one thought-provoking idea to think about over the weekend.

Cybersecurity concerns always increase when there is a widely publicized event such as the WannaCry ransomware attack a week or so ago.  But according to a recent article, published by,  the cybersecurity workforce needed to help us protect our organizations is lacking in numbers.

The lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals puts companies at risk. According to ISACA, the current cybersecurity skills gap leaves 1 in 4 organizations exposed to vulnerabilities for six months or more. And there’s no quick fix on the horizon: Despite new training programs and specialized roles for security experts, the distance between supply and demand is growing.

How can you think outside the box to find appropriate team members to fill your cybersecurity workforce ranks? 

That’s a WRAP!  Have a great weekend!
