The Widening Cyber Talent Gap
Cyber Talent Pool
The DIGISS Difference
As big a problem as the cyber talent gap is, the competency gap and staff turnover are arguably bigger. In terms of the competency gap, the cyber security programs of many organizations is driven by compliance obligations therefore once the people, process and technology elements of the program are in place, complacency sets in. This negatively impacts the career of some security professionals who then fail to see the need to continually develop their knowledge and skills in order to keep pace with the ever evolving technology and threat landscape. With regards to staff turnover, the law of demand and supply dictates that highly competent practitioners will always be on the move. According to Hitesh Sheth, CEO of Vectra, a company that makes AI software used by MIT, “People leave in 12 months because someone else will give them a 30% bump in pay”. Organizations struggle to identify and onboard cyber talents but the fight to retain them for longer than 2 years is an even tougher one.
Having studied this disturbing trend for at least the last decade, Digiss has come up with a Resource Pooling model that is aimed at alleviating the dangerous talent shortage. In simple terms, this model ensures that highly qualified and competent cyber security professionals are immediately available when needed. Our network of duly vetted professionals spans multiple continents and time zones.
