The Cybersecurity Skills Gap: An Update for 2020

Image
The gap in trained, experienced cybersecurity workers is one of those perennial problems: much ink is spilled every year in assessing the scale of the problem, and what can be done about it. We have recently pointed out, for instance, the importance of stopping attacks before they happen, and the fact that you can't hire your way out of the skills shortage.As we move into 2020, it's apparent that despite this focus on the problem, it has not been solved.

How does this affect the education vertical, with students in K-12? Well, for starters, a lot has changed since the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted in 2000. Adding on to dated Acts, let’s not forget that almost two-decades later, the landscape in academics has shifted drastically. We are no longer working from computer labs on a single-network, we are in the world of various personal devices expecting consistent wi-fi and cloud access.The internet is insurmountable - and as it continues to rapidly evolve, so should the filtering tactics used to keep students safe.
