Skills Gap = Security Gap

Roughly 1 million cybersecurity jobs worldwide are unfilled. The people already in the field are scrambling to keep up with the constantly changing tools and know-how they need to fend off attackers. No wonder 70% of organizations surveyed by the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESC) say the cybersecurity skills gap is causing them problems, and 54% say they’ve experienced at least one breach in the last year.

With current security staff already overwhelmed and not enough of a pipeline to meet the growing need, many industry pros suggest automating as many manual cybersecurity tasks as possible, while assessing how much more your security team can take on before deploying new technology. Xantrion is experienced in both, with an expert team focused on managing security so you don’t have to.
