Skills gap is projected to increase
A 2016 skills gap analysis from ISACA estimated a global shortage of 2 million cyber security professionals by 2019 (a half-million more than Symantec’s prior estimate), according to the UK House of Lords Digital Skills Committee.
Cybersecurity Ventures has reviewed and synthesized dozens of employment figures from the media, analysts, job boards, vendors, governments, and organizations globally, in order to estimate the number of cybersecurity job openings over the next 5 years. In 2015, Symantec expected the demand for cybersecurity talent would rise to 6 million globally by 2019, with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million. The cybersecurity jobs forecasts have been unable to keep pace with the dramatic rise in cybercrime, which is predicted to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015.
