Staffing the IT Security Function in the Age of Automation

It likely comes as no surprise that organizations struggle to hire and retain security professionals. In fact, in The Cybersecurity Jobs Report estimated that there will be 3.5 million unfilled positions by 2021. To explore this trend, and that of automation in the security space, the Ponemon Institute conducted the study “Staffing the IT Security Function in the Age of Automation: A Study of Organizations in the United States, United Kingdom, and Asia-Pac”. The study was conducted in April 2019.

Join Larry Ponemon and DomainTools Senior Security Advisor, Corin Imai, to better understand how companies are addressing the problem of attracting and retaining IT security practitioners and the impact automation and AI (artificial intelligence) will have on staffing and security practices in general.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How organizations use automation to improve their security posture
  • The expected impact of automation on the cybersecurity skills gap
  • Country and regional differences in the perception and implementation of automation
