Menlo Park, Calif. – Nov. 14, 2017
The global shortage of cybersecurity professionals is expected to reach 3.5 million unfilled positions by 2021, up from 1 million in 2014. Cybersecurity companies are responding to the labor crunch by providing healthcare providers and hospitals with a growing portfolio of services to choose from.
“Today, it is more common to work with healthcare organizations that have dedicated information security staff than it was just a year ago” says John Nye, Vice President of Cybersecurity Strategy for CynergisTek.
“Last year, HIMSS reported that 60% of organizations had a dedicated CISO, whereas the year prior that number was only 50.7%. As for non-executive and dedicated staff in 2017, 80% of respondents say they have dedicated security staff as opposed to just 42.7% last year” adds Nye. “While we are seeing this increase, there is still a serious shortage of cybersecurity professionals. If we don’t keep working to find solutions, we can’t expect things to keep improving.”
