Learn About the Issues, Trends and Challenges Facing Cyber Professionals
For the third year in a row, ISACA has surveyed security leaders worldwide to determine their insights and experiences with key cyber security issues, ranging from workforce challenges and opportunities to the emerging threat landscape.

Volume 1 of the report is now available and provides key insights into the persistent skills gap and how it impacts organizations. Among the findings:


• Quality and quantity are both big problems—organizations are getting very few applicants for each open cyber security role, and most of those candidates are not qualified.
• It often takes six months or longer to fill cyber security roles.
• More than half of respondents say hands-on experience is the most important quality for candidates to have, and 7 in 10 require a security certification.

Download your FREE copy of the White Paper - State of Cyber Security 2017 to see how your experience compares to the findings.
