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.
