Here are some important numbers to consider when thinking about the personnel and technology required to keep your network and your data safe:
- Over two thirds of all network compromises are not discovered for months.
- The average cost to a business for each record lost to a data breach is $148.
- There will be 3.5 million cybersecurity job vacancies by 2021
These gaps run the gamut from the heart of the datacenter up to the executive suite, including CISO and CSO positions. How are businesses supposed to prepare for their future if they are not fully staffed and ready to protect their present?
