The cyber security skills gap is a business challenge that isn’t going anywhere soon – in fact, it’s an issue that’s looming larger on the horizon than ever before. Almost two-thirds of businesses (63%) believe they have a security skills gap, according to research from non-profit association (ISC)², with more than half of these believing their business is at risk of an attack as a result.
So, what’s the problem? Why are businesses and their employees still so ill-prepared for cyber security threats? Firms certainly aren’t shy when it comes to spending on technology to help keep errant actors at bay.
