The costs and consequences of security threats have risen sharply—a company can expect to pay $13 million in total cybercrime costs, on average, according to Accenture. To secure network infrastructure, mitigate the risk of unauthorized access, and prevent data theft, organizations must implement extensive preventative measures and response protocols. This starts with building a knowledgeable and responsive network security team.
Unfortunately, in the midst of a global cybersecurity skills shortage, finding skilled talent is easier said than done. Approximately 70% of cybersecurity professionals believe that their companies have been impacted somewhat or significantly by the worldwide cybersecurity skills shortage, according to a survey conducted by The Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) and the Information Systems Security Association International (ISSA).
Cybersecurity professionals are also personally experiencing the effects of a tight job market amidst growing security threats. Nearly one-third of cybersecurity professionals say that the most stressful part of their job is trying to meet the security demands of new IT initiatives, and 31% of security experts point to the overwhelming workload, according to ESG and ISSA.
It is clear that both organizations and cybersecurity professionals need a specialized recruitment partner to help build comprehensive security teams that can address rapidly evolving security needs.
