Cyber-security: Indian businesses struggle to hire security professionals

The scale of attacks over the last year has highlighted the need for highly skilled resources, which increases the pressure on organisations that are already struggling to hire talent with the right cyber-security skills

The findings of the third edition of its survey report – The Future of Cyber-security in the Asia Pacific and Japan, in collaboration with Tech Research Asia (TRA), have been announced by Sophos. The study reveals that cyber-security budgets have remained stagnant, despite the increase in cyber-attacks, and executive teams continue to underestimate the level of damage threats can do to organisations.

60 per cent of organisations in India are struggling to recruit people with security skills they need. Furthermore, 94 per cent of Indian businesses believe that in the next 24 months, to their security, awareness and education of their employees and leadership will be the biggest challenge. Cognizant of the current state of cyber-security, the number of Indian organisations planning to appoint a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to lead their cyber-security strategy will increase from 33 per cent today to 40 per cent in the next 24 months.

“The scale of attacks over the last year has highlighted the need for highly skilled resources, which increases the pressure on organisations that are already struggling to hire talent with the right cyber-security skills. To combat today’s sophisticated cyber-attacks, organisations need next-generation cyber-security solutions and highly skilled personnel to manage these solutions, carry out 24×7 threat hunting and detection, and response operations. Considering the pace at which attacks are increasing, this skills gap can be dangerous for the security of organisations. To address this gap, organisations need to invest in machine learning-enabled cyber-security systems that automate certain tasks and reduce the workload of security teams. Those organisations that don’t have in-house teams that can carry out 24×7 security operations can outsource their security to managed service providers and their threat hunting to a specialised managed threat response service”, said Sunil Sharma, MD– sales, Sophos India and SAARC.
