A recent Ponemon Institute survey found out that the ‘lack of competent in-house staff’ outranks all other forms of cybersecurity worry, including data breaches to ransomware attacks. Edgard Capdevielle, CEO at Nozomi Networks commented below.

Edgard Capdevielle, CEO at Nozomi Networks:

“Finding talented cybersecurity staff will continue to be a serious dilemma for organizations in 2018 especially with the flood of sophisticated cyberthreats that will increase the pressure on IT/OT staffs. Technology is one way to ease the burden. Latest advancements can automate simple tasks that can take hours and days and reduce them to minutes. New technologies can also provide in-depth visibility into IT/OT networks for early threat detection and mitigation. Another possible solution is enabling Managed Security Service Providers to service industrial networks. It allows companies to outsource some of their security programs and, for MSSPs, it allows them to leverage scarce ICS cybersecurity talent across multiple clients.”
