Most security pros have considered quitting due to a lack of resources
Almost three in four (72%) security professionals have thought about quitting their jobs over a lack of resources at their organization. Almost eight out of ten (79%) companies suffer from skills and or technology shortages.
The survey also shows that infosec pros actually list security staff shortages (50%) and security technology shortcomings (47%) as the top threats to companies, followed by ransomware (also 47%), budget shortages (41%) and human error (40%). Censornet CEO Ed Macnair believes that given the skills shortage, “we can hardly be surprised that 74% of cybersecurity professionals describe themselves as “very busy”, but it is worrying that technology isn’t yet helping to solve the problem.”
