Bridging the Skills Gap

Security is now a top priority for organisations of all sizes. Choosing to ignore it can be an expensive decision, but balancing the cost of hiring the right people, the shortage of cyber skills in the market and investing in the best technology is challenging.

Almost half of UK businesses have a basic cybersecurity skills gap and 50% of organisations have a single person looking after their cybersecurity, so it comes as no surprise that only 28% of SMEs (sub-1000 employees) believe they have an effective security strategy and posture.

As with all IT services, when it comes to cybersecurity, businesses and public sector organisations have a choice: manage the whole security piece themselves or outsource some or all network security management to a MSSP (Managed Security Service Provider).
