Re-Imagining the Cyber Warrior of the Future

Closing the talent gap today to secure tomorrow.

The fight to keep data secure against threat actors is growing more severe as the number of attack types, vectors and enemies grows in scale, number and veracity, while the tools used to defend are still extremely limited. According to a recent study by the Ponemon Institute, the cost of a data breach jumped 23%. With more industries than ever before going digital, the risk of data breach has never been greater.

Most unsettling, the No. 1 asset in countering attacks is also the scarcest: cybersecurity professionals. Cybersecurity vendors and agencies can’t discover and bring in talent fast enough to control the current threat landscape. While there are many ambitious individuals who want to take on the challenges of cybersecurity, they’re often underqualified for the positions.
