There is also a chronic shortage of competent people in the cyber security space. So just at the moment when companies most need to be expanding their security teams, they are experiencing a chronic talent shortage. Further complicating, a major problem emerging in the industry is 'NOISE ' around tech solutions.'there are over 10,000 'security ' related companies that have started in the last decade. Much of this tech is all sex, sizzle and no trousers ' not living up to their claims, and certainly nowhere near the silver bullet they claim to be.
