A recent survey reveals,

“59% organizations are at extreme or moderate risk due to cybersecurity staff shortage.”

According to (ISC)2’s Cybersecurity Workforce Study, the gap is having a serious real-world impact around the globe. Asia-Pacific, with its growing economies and new privacy regulations, is experiencing the biggest shortage – 2.14 million positions.
