Cybersecurity Skills Shortage

PwC’s 2018 CEO survey has highlighted a continued hardening of global attitudes to security, with the top four threats to business growth prospects now including terrorism, geopolitical uncertainty, over-regulation and cyber threats. This shift is reflected by the language now used publicly – by government and business leaders alike – as highlighted by the US Department of Homeland Security’s recent announcement of its investigation into an attack on a critical infrastructure facility. There is growing rhetoric that the risk of sponsored cyber-attacks on (inter)national infrastructure could cause economic chaos.
