Addressing the Cybersecurity Hiring Shortage

The hiring shortage in cybersecurity is no secret. According to Forbes, 2016 saw 1 million job openings in cybersecurity across the United States, with projections to rise to 6 million in 2019. Not only is hiring cybersecurity professionals difficult, but retaining them even more so—nearly half of cybersecurity professionals receive an email or a call from a recruiter or other party about a job opening, and a quarter of chief information security officers get five or more such solicitations per week. And with threats increasing every single year, it’s the perfect storm for enterprises—more threats, less people, exponentially more risk. What can be done?

Join us and our friends over at Cybereason for our webinar, Addressing the People Problem on Tuesday, April 18th at 1:00pm EST. We’ll show you how to apply technology and artificial intelligence to secure your environment, strengthen your SOC, and alleviate your headcount problem.

You’ll learn:

  • Why throwing people at the problem isn’t working
  • How AI & technology can improve efficiency in your SOC
  • How to improve job satisfaction for your security analysts

Even if you can’t make it—sign up anyway and we’ll send you the recording.
