Security Skills Shortage, Or Training Failure?
Almost two-thirds of businesses say their information security departments are understaffed, and 51% say they can't find people with the required security skills.
Those findings come from a new Forrester Consulting report, "Security Intelligence Can Deliver Value Beyond Expectations And Needs To Be Prioritized," that was commissioned by IBM Global Technology Services. To make its point, the report references a Forrester Research survey of 2,400 executives and technology decision-makers at North American, European, and Indian businesses, conducted more than a year ago.
According to the report, 53% of businesses say they can't find enough suitable employees to run in-house security intelligence programs. It describes security intelligence as "the real-time collection, normalization, and analysis of the data generated by users, applications and infrastructure that impacts the IT security and risk posture of an enterprise."
