Australia Currently Suffering from Shortage of Cybersecurity Skills

A recent study by Intel Security has found that 88% of Australian participants reported a shortage of cybersecurity skills in their companies, compared to an average of 82% in the other countries surveyed.

The scarcest skills in Australian company’s cybersecurity professionals were technical skills in successful software development in Perth (81%), technical skills for intrusion detection (87%) and skills in attack migration (76%).

Andy Hurren is the solution architect for Intel Security, and he said that this shortage of skills is having a big impact on businesses throughout Australia. Half of the businesses he spoke to admitted to feeling exposed to hackers, and a third of them had already been victim to cyber attacks (losing data during the attack).

44% of businesses surveyed said they felt they were a target for hackers due to their limited cyber security, and almost a third (27%) said they have already lost proprietary data.
