Most large companies have spent decades under-spending on information and cybersecurity, says David Foote, partner and chief analyst at the research and analysis firm Foote Partners. That fact, combined with the skills shortage for cybersecurity experts can create some real vulnerabilities for both large and small organizations.
In part one of a three-part interview, Foote described how the IT talent shortage can hamper digital transformation, and how smart companies are planning ahead and developing internal talent for future needs. In part two, he explained how the rise of the Internet of Things will create crippling shortages in some key areas, and what to do now to prepare for it. In part three, he takes a look at cybersecurity and how to handle the skills gap in that area.
