How Organizations Are Handling the Cloud Security Skills Gap in 2023
EC-Council’s latest whitepaper, “How Organizations Are Handling the Cloud Security Skills Gap in 2023,” authored by Kimberly Mentzell, Cybersecurity Program Manager at the Maryland Department of Commerce, provides valuable insights into the current state of cloud security skills gap and how organizations are addressing this challenge.
The whitepaper highlights that cloud adoption has accelerated rapidly over the last few years, and organizations are now heavily relying on cloud service providers for their critical infrastructure and applications. However, the skills gap in cloud security has become a significant challenge for many organizations, with a shortage of experienced professionals in this field. The whitepaper explores organizations’ various approaches to bridging the skills gap, including training and certification programs, outsourcing, and partnering with Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs). While training and certification programs are beneficial, they require significant time and money. Outsourcing and partnering with MSSPs can effectively overcome the skills gap, but it can also increase the risk of data breaches and other security incidents.
