BrandPost: New report reveals tips for building a skilled cybersecurity workforce
By Microsoft Security
Innovations in cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT) have paved the way for an increasingly interconnected world. Thanks to these digital technologies, businesses can more easily expand their operations across the globe—increasing productivity and driving greater economic gains. However, for all of its benefits, technology also exposes companies to a greater risk of cyber-attacks.
The number of cybersecurity incidents is now outstripping current defense capabilities. One reason for this is the lack of adequately skilled cybersecurity workers. Also known as the cyber skills gap, this trend has limited enterprises’ ability to contain threats. If companies are to truly bridge this gap, they will need to broaden their recruiting horizons to look beyond traditional cybersecurity career paths and recruit from a more diverse range of industries.
