Optiv Security and Momentum Cyber White Paper Defines the Five Trends and Technologies That Will Relieve the Cyber Security Skills Shortage
Aug. 21, 2018
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--Optiv Security and Momentum Cyber have published a new white paper entitled “E is for Efficiency,” which discusses the five key trends and technologies that will dramatically reduce the impact of the cyber security skills shortage by creating much greater efficiency in enterprise security programs. The paper details the state of the cyber security skills shortage, which is projected to hit 1.8 million jobs by 2022. “E is for Efficiency” then defines the five key technologies and trends in security that promise to lessen or even eradicate this problem:
When combined, these five trends and technologies eliminate enormous amounts of manual labor while improving overall security posture, through the reduction of human error, more effective use of on-staff expertise, and the use of continuous security validation. By automating manual tasks, they also relieve enterprises and service providers from the requirement of continually hiring more security professionals to manage an ever-growing infrastructure, thus curbing or even eliminating the impact of the cyber security skills shortage.
