A Cybersecurity Drought Is Coming#cybersecurity

According to the United States Department of Labor, employment of information security analysts is projected to grow yearly by 28 percent up to 2026

Yes, there is a cybersecurity drought looming over the horizon. The data coming in is alarming; They are announcing that by 2020 there could be a shortage of cybersecurity experts by up to 1.5 million, worse yet, the shortage could reach 3.5 million by 2021.

How is a global economy about to connect from 20 to 50 Billion IOT devices in 2020 alone can allow this to happen? The jobs are there, the colleges are ready, but the numbers are not growing fast enough.

Some Facts to Consider About the Impending Cybersecurity Drought:

  • Spending on cybersecurity in the United States grew up to 66 Billion dollars by 2018.
  • The amount of Mobile Malware Attacks Doubled from 2017 to 2018.
  • While some attacks carry a monetary loss, others carry more sinister distress. One example is the threat of leaking personal photos or documents if a ransom is not paid.
  • Alone in the US, more than 14 million businesses are at risk of cyber-attacks. Unfortunately, many have to close their doors once it happens.
