A Frightening Cyber Security Statistic — Under-Staffed Staffs

Posted By Staff reporter, Tuesday, April 2, 2019

ISACA is a global group that helps individuals and businesses with technology issues like cyber security. It just did some research on the problem of finding cyber security professionals to assist with the defense of a company’s data bases and other information.


The results are frightening.


A whopping 69% of the security people quizzed said the lure of more pay other places makes it very, very difficult to keep personnel. That same issue also makes it difficult to find people to work in the cyber security endeavors of the company.


As a result:


  69% say they are understaffed

  57% say they offer increased training as an incentive to stay

  But 82% say most leave for other companies offering higher salaries, bonuses and promotions

  58% say — as a result — they have unfilled positions


ISACA’s board chairman Rob Clyde said, “We’re in a highly fluid environment where organizations are increasingly challenged by competitive forces. Creative and competitive retention efforts are more important than ever in the current environment, and organizations should make it a priority to identify ways to boost their cyber security teams.”


By the way:


  Just 45% of the females responding think men and women have an equal shot at advancement

  That’s down from 51% a year ago

  Less than half of the cyber security organizations polled have a gender diversity program
