Why Read This Report

Every day, we hear news stories, speeches, and vendor pitches that lament our acute cybersecurity talent shortage, one that will take years to address. However, the shortage is largely self-inflicted, which means CISOs can tackle it quickly by changing the ways they recruit, train, and retain people. This report dissects the myths, misconceptions, and half-truths within cybersecurity staffing and explains a more effective way for security and risk pros to build a complete, qualified security team.
