The organizations are working with the connected devices from personal computers, mobile phones, and the Internet of Things (IoT) devices. But the extensive use of these devices is bringing a lot of cybersecurity threats and attacks with them. The risk to organizations from network-enabled cyber attacks has increased exponentially in past few years. Cybersecurity breaches are happening every other day in the world of IT causing costly damage to any organization, in terms of both capital and reputation. A recent survey reported that 43% of organizations had experienced a data breach in the past two years. Surveys had also revealed that two in five organizations face data breach each year in which a significant amount of confidential data is compromised. The data breaches are very dangerous for any organization, reports had revealed that the cost of the attacks has increased 26% in the past few years. The average loss caused by a data breach is USD 11.6 Million. The pattern of cyber attacks has also changed in the past years. The skills of the criminals often outpace the ability of security professionals inside organizations. The increased number of cyber attacks are strong proof of this. This increases the importance of cybersecurity, qualified and well-trained engineers.
In the past few years, many organizations have reported the shortage of security professionals. Here are the stats:
22%: Healthcare organizations
27%: Retail/wholesale organizations
28%: Financial services organizations
29%: Manufacturing organizations
36%: Government organizations
The stats clearly show that shortage of the skilled security professionals is the prime concern for the organizations of all domains. To resolve this problem of working with less skilled security professionals, organizations are hiring professionals certified in the field of cybersecurity.
