More CISOs looking to recruit cyber-security trainers than leaders, analysts, engineers or pen testers
I have often said our IT skills crises is not of skills, but of employers who train and have been looking at why that is. Evidence is emerging that the shortage of trainers is a prime cause. The headlines from the Harvey Nash/PGI 2016 Cybersecurity are not unexpected: “Half of all boards lack real understanding of cyberthreat” [one might same the same of supposed cyber-security “professional” with their obsessions over technology rather than strategy]. I was not therefore surprised to see that half of all respondents (CISOs) were looking for security architects.
