I believe the biggest challenge for cybersecurity organizations inside companies large and small results from two megatrends: (1) the exponential growth in data from business systems and the security sensors meant to protect those businesses and (2) the extreme and growing shortage of skilled cybersecurity personnel to analyze and respond to incidents illuminated by this data.
I’m happy you asked this question because it is certainly on many peoples’ minds. Let me start by addressing the question with respect to the cybersecurity industry and then give a broader perspective.
If you read the news, at any time, you would learn that cybersecurity threats are increasing. We don’t give it a second thought when a well-funded, sophisticated nation state is the source of a breach.
