Right now, the IT industry is at a critical point: new vulnerabilities and associated cyber threats are discovered daily and cybersecurity incidents are on the rise, but there is an incredibly large, and growing, shortage of a skilled cybersecurity workforce. By 2021, it is predicted that there will be upwards of 3.5 unfilled cybersecurity jobs, which is more than 3 times the number of unfilled jobs today. And at a time when the skills shortage is increasing, the threat of a cyber attack and the cost that an organization will incur from an attack is increasing as well.
