Unfilled Cybersecurity Jobs Grew by 350% In The Last Eight Years!

July 2022 by Matt Morris, managing director of 1898 & Co

Over an eight-year period tracked by Cybersecurity Ventures [1], the
number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs grew by 350 percent, from 1
million positions in 2013 to 3.5 million in 2021. Meanwhile,
cybersecurity companies are seeing an uptick in ransomware attacks and
are bolstering spending to protect their data, forcing consequent job
cuts [2] at a time when talent is few and far between.

Cutting valuable employees is hard, but cutting employees during a
talent shortage is harder.

Luckily, industry professionals are waking up to this problem and
discovering new ways to fill cybersecurity positions. Matt Morris,
managing director of 1898 & Co., a business, technology, and
cybersecurity consulting firm, believes that as an industry, OT leaders
must consider hiring smart people from other industries, rethink
training, and engage with universities.

“They need to take direct and concerted effort to present
cybersecurity as an exciting and lucrative profession, one that can
potentially protect the world from grievous harm,” he said.

I’d love to set you up on a call with Matt to talk about closing the
labor gap and how 1898 & Co. shifted their strategy to address industry
shortages. Let’s hop on a call to hammer out the details.
