While a shortage of resources has been an ongoing cybersecurity concern, another issue that receives less attention but is equally important is the lack of cybersecurity talent. Finding qualified cybersecurity professionals to fill the knowledge gaps within your organization is not easily accomplished. There seems to be barely enough talent to address the tasks that must be done, let alone tackle the projects on your security "wishlist." A major consequence of this talent gap is that overwhelmed security teams choose to re-image compromised endpoints immediately, rather than investigating incidents in depth to remediate them. Relying on this approach can be very disruptive for the business - clearly, organizations need a better solution.

This webcast, "The Cybersecurity Talent Gap: An Unforeseen Impediment to Fast and Effective Incident Remediation," describes the extent of the problem and explains how an innovative solution, CrowdStrike(R) Falcon Complete(TM) solves the remediation challenge. Learn how this unique worry-free approach provides organizations with a dedicated team of security professionals focused on managing and monitoring endpoint security and responding to threats.

This webinar will illustrate the benefits of this approach with a real-life case study and a demonstration of how a malware outbreak can be quickly and efficiently remediated, even for organizations that are experiencing a shortage of security resources.
