Mind The Gap: Surviving The Technical Security Skills Crisis

Duration: 60 minutes

Are you having a hard time finding and hiring qualified IT security staff – and retaining them on staff? If so, you are not alone. There is a widespread technical security skills crisis, and the situation is not going away any time soon. Forrester and IBM, in a joint research study, have probed deeper into this problem to offer solutions.

Join this webinar to hear from Andy Rose (Principal Analyst, Security & Risk group – Forrester Research), Nick Hayes (Lead Researcher, Security & Risk group – Forrester Research), and Jack Danahy (IBM Security Services executive) as they discuss the security skills gap and insights gained from the recent research study. As you struggle to increase security funding and headcount, this webinar will help you make the case for both. Attend this webinar to learn:

  • How this problem puts your company at risk – today, 92 percent of security decision-makers report that staffing issues are contributing to heightened levels of risk
  • The prognosis of the industry – the situation is only getting worse, say survey participant
  • The future of IT security – forward-thinking security leaders are looking to new solutions and approaches, including partnering with managed security services providers (MSSPs)

Attend this webinar to hear key recommendations for preparing for a future when technical skills will be in even higher demand.
