Addressing the cyber skills shortage
How upskilling can help you stay ahead of emerging threats with homegrown cyber talent
Cyber threats continue to proliferate, pushing leading industries, governments and supply chains to strategize for the future while they put out existing fires.
As companies ramp up their overall risk management efforts, they need to be careful not to conflate compliance with security. Adjusting your practices to operate in accordance with new laws and guidance doesn’t mean you’ll always be ahead of bad actors. You need to be vigilant and proactive.
And you’ll be in good company — half of executives say they’ll bake cyber considerations into all of their business plans and decisions. These trends toward proactivity can benefit everyone. But meeting the demands of now and anticipating the future brings challenges.
While the threats have been multiplying, the talent pool to address them hasn’t. Upskilling and reskilling current employees — even beyond those in traditional cyber and IT roles —can help you close gaps and support cybersecurity strategies.
