In response to a new Lieberman survey which reveals that there is a shortage of skilled IT professionals, Amichai Shulman, CTO of Imperva explains how the problem can be solved.
Amichai Shulman, CTO of Imperva :
“The skills shortage is a long-term challenge facing the cyber security industry, one that needs to be addressed in the education system. We need to provide education about computers and security technology at an early age, and then partner with universities and technical schools to offer curricula to build this skill set within the population. In the meantime, providing professional education and development within a company and to interested employees is something companies should consider for investment. In fact, our internal research group, the ADC, is involved in such educational activities both within the company and outside of it”.
