Threats are not going away, and globally, the information security workforce shortfall is increasing –a combination of facts that continues to trouble CIOs.

The global dependency on technology, combined with the ceaseless sophistication, frequency and creativity of cybersecurity threats, continues to increase our vulnerability at a national, organizational and individual level. Left unchecked, these incidents will rise and become more sophisticated and harder to detect. And with a broadening footprint that includes cloud-based services, mobile devices, big data, and the Internet of Things (IOT), traditional network boundaries are dissolving – and leaving us with new challenges in how we keep secure across all locations.  It’s a challenge that is compounded by the need for sufficient skilled resources and a backdrop of significant resourcing challenges across the globe.

This whitepaper will outline different options that organisations can adopt to combat the skills shortage, ranging from outsourcing your entire security services to doing nothing at all.
