Cyber Security Skills Shortage

As security threats to businesses rise, so too does the demand for skilled Information Security professionals.

With the gap between supply demand set to widencar-dealership-customer-wifi over the next five years, many SME organisations will find themselves priced out of the Information Security skills market place. The reality is that you may not need a full time Information Security Analyst or Manager in your organisation. Using specialist external Information Security consultancy and support could lower your cost of entry into the required skills and provide you with up to date and relevant real world experience. It also removes the time, effort and cost required to recruit the right candidates.

With the average salary for qualified Information Security professionals exceeding £60k, and on going investment required to keep skills up to date, outsourcing could be your best move.

You can read more about the Information Security skills gap in this article from Computer Business Review.
