How do you bridge the cybersecurity talent gap?
The cybersecurity industry is faced with a widening talent gap. In 2015, a Symantec survey forecasted the shortage of cybersecurity experts to hit 1.5 million by 2019. The latest study by Cybersecurity Ventures, a firm that researches the global cyber economy, predicts that figure to rise above 3.5 million by 2021.
The same study expects the cost of cybercrime to reach an annual $6 trillion by 2021, twice the recorded $3 trillion in 2015.
