Think Tank - 10:45 am - 11:10 am

At a time when the threat landscape ever expanding, two out of three organizations worldwide claim to have a lack of the IT security staff needed. The need for cybersecurity professionals is at an all-time high.

Today's products and technologies can enable even small teams to appropriately secure multiple websites and applications, offering potential answers to the pressing recruitment issues. 

Takeaways:

  • There is a critical lack of qualified IT specialists 
  • Staffing deficits increase the need for automated tools 
  • New products can assist small teams facing big security challenges
