Globally, more no of organizations are conducting businesses online implying a rapidly expanding digital footprint with more no of people, machines and devices being part of the same eco system making it a truly borderless global economy that’s always connected. Given the fact that Human element is the most intrinsic part of this massive global value chain, it throws open a wide array of attack vectors as well considering this very human element is also widely debated as the most weakest link. However they can be the most powerful ammunition if rightly trained depending on where they figure across the value chain.
Wary of this fact, organizations today are relatively more open to an increased spend for Cyber Security, yet the cost of cyber crime worldwide has quadrupled in the recent years and will outpace the spending manifold.
The demand for skilled man power is therefore the highest in the area of Cyber Security as there is a growing urgency amongst the organizations to secure the data with the increased sophistication in terms of the scale and intensity of these cyber attacks. But unfortunately, the reality is that there aren’t enough skilled manpower who can combine the theoretical security knowledge with the practical hands on experience to mitigate these sophisticated attacks.
And that’s precisely the need of the hour, to fill this massive gap of demand vs supply of Highly Skilled Man Power and more importantly a methodical and systematic way to create the required talent pool that has been trained hands-on to handle any catastrophic security event. This calls for a Global collaboration of Thought Leaders, SMEs, Businesses and Govts alike to work from the grass root level to bridge this alarming gap and create a globally replicable model that results in a qualified pool of resources.
With a worldwide membership of 22k+ Info-sec professionals, a large part of which are highly skilled SMEs, GCS forum is looking to play a crucial role in bridging this alarming gap thru trainings and workshops at the grass root levels thru public-private collaborations.
