There’s good news, and there’s bad news. The good news is that the number of cybersecurity professionals has reached an all-time high. According to (ISC)2’s annual Cybersecurity Workforce Study, 4.7 million people currently work in a security-related job.
The bad news: the study also found a worldwide gap of 3.4 million cybersecurity workers. 70% of those surveyed also said they think their organization’s security team is understaffed, decreasing its effectiveness.
