A survey from Kaspersky Lab has found that large businesses hiring outside help pay between $1.2 million and $1.47 million to recover from a cybersecurity incident, compared with those large businesses that have skilled in-house IT security experts, which pay between $100,000 and $500,000.
With an average of 315,000 malware threats detected on a daily basis, it is essential that businesses reassess their security teams and defenses.
Cybersecurity talent shortage
While it is well known that there is a shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals, the survey found that proactively hiring new, expert staff before an incident, rather than bringing them in to pick up the pieces, significantly lowers the average IT costs and helps better protect the business.
Demand for ISO 27001-qualified professionals
ISO 27001 is the certification that organizations can achieve to prove their commitment to tackling cybersecurity. Demand for ISO 27001-qualified cybersecurity professionals has seen a significant increase in the last two years.
