Security Organization Dynamics

The growing cyber skills shortage drives security organizations to look for ways to mitigate the pain and danger that short-staffed security teams can experience.

In its report, Security Organization Dynamics, Gartner outlines this ongoing challenge and notes how, “Persistent security skills shortages have forced security leaders to explore new ways of obtaining and managing security capabilities.”

Gartner points out that hiring may not be the only option for filling the gap, cautioning that, “Few, if any, enterprises can afford to perform all security functions in-house. Consider selective outsourcing of functions, especially those that are operationalized or ad hoc.”

For organizations experiencing the acute lack of cyber security expertise in their security teams, FireEye offers Expertise On Demand, an annual subscription that extends your security operations capabilities and capacity by providing flexible access to a wide range of industry-recognized security expertise.
