35% of companies do not have a single cybersecurity expert, despite an ever increasing attack rate. This is a concerning fact but what is perhaps more concerning is the shortage of experts in the field.
As it stands, there is tremendous demand for security technology and talent, but unfilled cybersecurity jobs have reached 2.9 million worldwide. Salaries for these positions are increasing (by 6% in just one year) to reflect the necessity and growing threat to organisations.
GlobalData’s Cybersecurity report explains how vital it is for companies to adequately protect the data they have collected and stored for their customers, as failing to do so will with no doubt destroy their brand, reputation and quality of products.
