CISO Cybersecurity is the first and only organization in India to look at cybersecurity from an all-encompassing perspective – consulting and advisory, skill development, and awareness at citizen, academia, corporate and government levels.
Sophisticated Nature of Technologies
Adoption of new and disruptive technologies like social, mobile, big data, cloud and Internet of Things/Everything is not an option for organizations in the Digital Business era – those who don’t adopt will become irrelevant competitively and may not exist in future. These technologies on their own and in their Nexus introduce a plethora of vulnerabilities opening up avenues for cyber attacks and significantly elevating organizational risk.
Lack of Security Professionals
As per the National Cyber Security Policy, India needs 500,000 cybersecurity professionals in the next 3 years with just about 60000 at present. The situation is the same in other countries too. There is a major cybersecurity skills shortage globally! As per 2015 (ISC)2 Global Information Security Workforce Study by Frost and Sullivan consultants, the demand for cybersecurity professionals in 2014 was 3.6 million, whereas the shortfall was 0.2 million. In 2018, the demand is projected to grow to 5.4 million with a projected shortfall of 1.2 million.
