Are More Defined Parameters the Key to Addressing the Cybersecurity Skills Gap? (Security Intelligence)


recently came across a lively discussion on LinkedIn where the participants were debating the use of the term ‘cybersecurity’ when they really meant information security. The discussion eventually got lost in my feed, so I never saw if the participants came to a conclusion, but that conversation highlighted a question that was brought up in an (ISC)2 study released last fall: Is the inability to define security at the heart of the cybersecurity skills gap? If we can’t truly define what security is, how can organizations design the right cybersecurity jobs for their needs?
