Cybersecurity Skills Gap Survey 2019
The skills gap remains one of the biggest challenges for the cybersecurity industry. To gain more perspective on what organizations are experiencing, Tripwire partnered with Dimensional Research to survey 336 security professionals on this issue. This study explores hiring trends, how security teams are changing, and how they plan to address the issue in the face of growing cyberthreats.
The report found that most organizations are experiencing more difficulty finding skilled cybersecurity professionals, that they are understaffed, and that they feel at risk of losing the ability to maintain key cybersecurity programs. Findings also suggest that skills gap-related issues are worsening, comparing responses to similar research done in August 2017.
