Cybersecurity Experts Only Present In 65% Of Organisations

1088 0

Despite 95 percent of CIOs expecting cyberthreats to increase over the next three years, only 65 percent of their organizations currently have a cybersecurity expert, according to a survey from Gartner. The survey also reveals that skills challenges continue to plague organizations that undergo digitalization, with digital security staffing shortages considered a top inhibitor to innovation.

Andy Norton, Director of Threat Intelligence at Lastline:

“To diligently counter intrusions, organisations need  timely access to expertise in order to manage risk. The current levels of data breaches show that there is a significant amount of unmitigated risk due to the skills shortage and lack of appropriate relevant intelligence. Organisations must embrace AI that is adversary resistant, just like a human expert would be, to provide the analytics to automate prevention and response countermeasures based on an coalesced array of signature, behavioural and anomaly detection technologies.”
