Cybersecurity: Is Outsourcing the Only Solution to Tackle Skills Shortage?

Data breaches are not a new thing in the Internet world. With growing users and their data, increasingly cyber thieves are out there on the web and stealing crucial information. For example, Marriot International announced a data breach of around 500 million customers in 2016, and it was not discovered until 2018. Similarly, Facebook faced similar violations in recent times when a database containing more than 419 million users was leaked, which was hosted over an unprotected network. Such data include user IDs, account names, likes, comments, and other sensitive information. Witnessing such acts is common, and this requires companies to stay highly vigilant 

This is the reason the USA is expected to dominate the cybersecurity market in the coming times. The technology advancements and early cybersecurity adoption are key indicators of why the USA should be the center of all cybersecurity requirements. Even globally, the investments in information security are shooting up year over year. It witnessed a $114 billion in 2018, which is 12.4% boos from 2017. It is also believed that the forecast for 2019 was quite close to seeing $124 billion and is expected to surge up to $170.4 billion by 2022.    

While there is a need for cybersecurity, the lack of skilled resources is the root cause of such data breach attacks. The booming market is high on demand and less on supply. A cybersecurity venture prediction has published in the NY Times indicates a gap of 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally by 2021. Such a dearth of talent means companies being more vulnerable to cyber-attacks 

Of many other challenges, two crucial issues lead to such a demand and supply gap in the cybersecurity sector 

Lack of training: Most organizations fail to provide required cybersecurity training to their staff. Stress and Burnout: New IT initiatives demand cybersecurity experts keep up with the latest cyber-risks.  

Being vigilant and having data privacy responsibilities on the head, the professionals often feel the stress and experience burnout quicker.
