The demand for qualified cybersecurity experts
has become more significant than ever, with
worldwide workforce shortages affecting 82 of
enterprises. The growing attack surface, combined
with the ongoing pandemic, has only complicated
the problem. According to a mid-2021 study, the
situation was anticipated to worsen, with
pressing needs, employee stress, rising
workloads, and vacant positions as the top

The cybersecurity skills shortage is one of the
most severe issues faced by organizations. Many
businesses are intensely focused on filling
employment openings because they are under
pressure to meet security commitments, but this
will not be enough. To address current and future
needs, organizations must establish and invest in
a solid cybersecurity recruitment strategy. In
this article, we will go through how to combat
the cybersecurity skills gap. Ways to Combat
Cybersecurity Skills Gap Its no secret that
cybersecurity expertise is scarce. Its a problem
that has been troubling all organizations for
years, and its just growing worse. Many
initiatives have been made to reduce the gap, but
they have failed so far. Lets look at what can
be done to overcome it and what we believe are
the most effective strategies to tackle the
cybersecurity skills gap.

  • Collaboration with Educational Institutions
     Institutions and Technical Colleges offer a
    variety of cybersecurity courses and degree
    programs that could assist in closing the skills
    gap in the future. Organizations should find
    local higher education institutions and recruit
    people for internships and entry-level roles in
    the meanwhile. The cybersecurity team members can
    offer to be guest speakers, arrange a tour of the
    organization, or inquire about hiring events with
    the colleges student placement team.
  • Select Talent and Ability While technical
    knowledge and expertise are helpful, they are not
    the only skills required for a cybersecurity
    position. Organizations should look for
    applicants who have talent and valuable soft
    skills like communication, creativity, and
    problem-solving. When looking for new employees,
    be sure that the prospects are able and eager to
    provide training. Also, organizations should
    include more cybersecurity teams in this process.
  • Hire Veterans Veterans have been used to working
    in high-pressure situations, using cutting-edge
    technology, and being entrusted with sensitive
    information. Organizations have numerous
    possibilities to sponsor veteran-focused
    cybersecurity training groups while also
    increasing their profile as a possible job.

  • Search for Related Skills Hiring managers want
    to locate candidates who have worked in a role
    comparable to the one they are looking to fill.
    You can broaden your applicant pool by hiring for
    skills rather than responsibilities in a tight
    labor market. Search for candidates with computer
    networking or ITSM abilities which can be trained
    on the required skill set.
  • Explore Your Options Recruiters must expand
    their ideas of who fits in a cybersecurity
    position. Even trained veterans dont know
    everything there is to know about cybersecurity,
    given the ever-changing threat landscape. Indeed,
    because of their holistic perspective, employees
    who understand what technologies a company has
    and for what purpose may be a better fit in the
    long run. Curiosity and the capacity to solve
    issues are beneficial in various vocations,
    including cybersecurity.
  • Automate IT departments should find ways to
    promote automation and integration of workflow
    and maintenance procedures to speed up processes
    and reduce the workload. SOAR (Security
    Orchestration Automation and Response) solutions
    can boost productivity while reducing the
    requirement for new hires.

  • Train The training program, like automation
    techniques, boosts your IT security teams
    efficiency. Certifications that increase a
    cybersecurity professionals marketability but
    not necessarily their productivity are frequently
    obtained. Connect your teams skill gaps to
    critical targets and look at training courses
    that will help them get the most out of their
    existing tools. Organizations should provide
    basic cybersecurity training to all employees in
    order to combat malware, phishing/social
    engineering, and ransomware assaults.
    Organizations should incorporate such training
    into daily business operations rather than
    treating it as a one-time onboarding effort or an
    infrequent project.
  • Provide a Backup Staff More than just subject
    material, skill is needed for security teams.
    They must comprehend the significance of security
    in the advancement of the firm and its
    interaction with different organization
    components. Members of company operations,
    project management, and human resources must
    assist the security team.

  • Hire Remote Professionals COVID-19 has changed
    peoples perceptions of working from home.
    Organizations have traditionally needed security
    personnel to work in a secure physical facility
    or Security Operations Center (SOC). While there
    are still benefits to having team members
    collaborate in the same area, IT security
    managers are increasingly supportive of virtual
    collaboration. This transition gives individuals
    in the sector greater flexibility, and it will
    make a difference in the fight against the cyber
    skills gap.
  • Change SOC Location The task of staffing and
    managing a 24-hour operation is not easy, and
    human behavior studies suggest that productivity
    and effectiveness suffer during the second and
    third shifts. Follow the sun-model, and make the
    best of your teams productivity by scheduling
    their shifts during local work time. Usually, the
    higher qualified and more experienced experts do
    not agree to sacrifice their quality of life by
    working in the graveyard shifts.
