A recent international survey by Robert Half found that almost a third (32%) of CIOs and CTOs said IT cyber security skills have become the most difficult to find skill since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, Australia and New Zealand continue to suffer from a longstanding and well documented skills shortfall in the cyber-security sphere. Aust Cyber research suggests that Australia will be short 18,000 cyber-security experts by 2026. Restrictions on international movement imposed to stop the spread of the COVID virus have exacerbated the problem in both countries.
Simon Howe, Vice President Sales Asia Pacific, LogRhythm, said, “The pressure on today’s security teams is immense, and we are fully committed to supporting them. We’ve spent the past year strengthening and expanding our training and certification program to enhance the ability of channel partners and resellers to be on the front foot when it comes to cybersecurity posture. We now look forward to deepening our partnership with the recognised expert team at Chillisoft to ensure that our customers can be best upskilled and protected from current and future cybersecurity threats.”
