The need to safeguard data has become a hot topic lately.
Recent security breaches have companies taking extra steps to ensure their critical data is secure.
This has led to an increased demand for IT security experts.
According to a recent article on Dice.com:
“Demand for the skills necessary to secure networks and data continues to drive opportunities for security specialists. During April, job postings for security-related positions rose 20 percent year-on-year, according to business intelligence from Wanted Analytics.”
According to another study by Frost and Sullivan, “Demand for security professionals in the Americas is increasing by 12% annually, with 164,000 jobs forecast in the next year alone.” Source
Companies are seeking security talent from the outside to address the talent gap; however, one alternative that's often overlooked is providing existing personnel with security-related training for product areas they already manage.
Training existing staff accelerates your timeline and reduces long-term costs associated with turnover and re-hiring.
