Concerns about the security skills gap and the talent shortage were heard everywhere at RSA Conference 2019. A session about data privacy focused on how the barrage of new privacy laws would increase the need for cybersecurity professionals as well as physical security. Conversations at vendor booths wondered how organizations can best address the shortage. The topic buzzed, even at the after-show parties.
No doubt about it, the security skills gap is impacting how organizations keep data and networks safe, and it is going to take a long time until we are able to see solid footing within the industry.
