Six Predictions for 2018 Data Security – Prediction #5

Category: Data Security

Most companies are finding it very difficult to find qualified security staff. Providers of security solutions will need to ensure their systems are easy to deploy, administer and use.

Prediction 5: Security resources will become even more scarce

Companies are already experiencing a scarcity of available security resources, and it will get worse in 2018, reducing their ability to implement and administer new security solutions. In a recent Forbes article it was reported that ISACA, a non-profit security advocacy group predicts there will be a global shortage of two million cyber security professionals by 2019.

The lack of security resources available on the market will lead organizations to favor security solutions that easily connect to their existing IT and security ecosystem. They will also scrutinize the overhead required to administer a given solution, meaning that simplified user and policy administration will be an important capability in any new security solution investment.
