Cybersecurity Talent Shortage

With Cyberattacks on the rise, it is no surprise that cybersecurity professionals are in demand. While the industry is growing rapidly, the schools and certifications for that area of study are very expensive. The Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), has forecasted a shortage of 2 million specialists by 2019.

Careers and Jobs in Cyber securityEven with employer assistance, many still cannot afford the full cybersecurity education and training. It has been suggested that one solution to the issue is to transition existing IT staff into the role of cybersecurity. Because so much of the task is network and application development, it is not far beyond the realm of general IT. While it may not be the ideal solution, it will help companies struggling to find security specialists. Unfortunately though, cyber attacks are becoming more advanced and more frequent.
