CISOs Need People, Not Just Technology, to Repel Cyber Attacks

CISO Perspectives With Laura Whitt-Winyard

Businesses in every industry are adopting technologies at a breathtaking rate. While this makes people and processes more efficient, security teams struggle to keep pace. If CISOs can’t secure the systems that process, send, receive or store digital assets like PII, PHI, and IP, the hackers win. Securing systems and sensitive data, however, requires a highly skilled labor force. Unfortunately, demand for cybersecurity staff exceeds supply.
