Cybersecurity professionals are calling for better education and improved apprentice schemes after saying a shortfall of staff in the sector is leaving companies exposed to hacker attacks.

According to a recent survey of recruitment agencies, 81% expect a rise in demand for digital security staff, but only 16% saw that the demand would be met.

“Demand is sky-high,” said Tim Holman, the chief executive of the cybersecurity consultancy 2-Sec. “The cost of dealing with cyber problems is only going to go up, insurance premiums will go up, the price of cleanups will go up.”
