Cyber Security Workforce Shortage

With cyber attacks and breaches frequently in the news, it is no surprise that European businesses are looking to go on a hiring spree for cyber security talent. Although there is a worrying industry wide​ shortage of skills when it comes to technology. European firms want to grow their teams by at least 15% in the next year. However, this year’s study reveals that a cyber security skills workforce gap of 1.8 million by 2022 is what Europe is facing. Employers are encouraged to do more, such as embracing new talent and a changing workforce, but unfortunately, 92% of hiring managers said they prioritise previous cyber security experience when candidates for jobs are chosen. In addition to looking for non-traditional hires, hiring managers must be aware that their expectations for new hires do not correspond with workers’ priorities for a successful career.
