Cyber security is a specialised field, requiring a thorough knowledge of contemporary security technologies, and a clear understanding of the current threat landscape and the latest defence best-practices.
High-profile data breaches accompanied by the subsequent fines and reputational damage thanks to more stringent regulation and enforcement powers, have brought cyber security into the public focus: security is now simply too important to ignore.
Cybersecurity Ventures forecasts that 100 percent of large corporations (Fortune 500, Global 2000) globally will have a CISO or equivalent position by 2021 (up from 70 percent in 2018), although many of them will be unfilled due to a lack of experienced candidates.
