As we all know the number of cyber attacks has grown every year and in 2015 alone hundreds of companies lost over $575 billion due to these hack attacks. Now, more than ever, companies and government organizations are desperate to protect their infrastructure and applications against additional attacks.
The influx in attacks can be blamed on the evolving technology being used by criminals. Hackers don’t need the skills or resources they one needed to penetrate and hack networks. Thanks to efficient and effective tools, readily available in the underground markets, attacks are taking place more frequently and at larger scales. Additionally these tools have made the job so much easier, there is a huge increase in cyber criminals joining the ranks across the globe
Security Professional Shortage
Due to increased attacks, there is a very high demand for skilled cyber security professionals to defend and protect against these cyber attacks. However, the problem is there just aren’t enough qualified cyber security professionals to match the ever growing global demand. As a matter of fact, there are over 1 million unfilled cyber security jobs worldwide.
Why are there so many jobs open and not enough cyber security professionals available to fulfill these jobs. Well I think there are a few different reasons for this.
- Traditional academia just can’t keep up with the pace of constant change in cyber security. Additionally most professionals don’t have the time or resources to sit in classrooms and go through the traditional learning model.
- Industry standard certifications are outdated and are unable to keep up with the rapid change in technology and learning methods today’s learners expect.
