William Rimington Discusses Cyber Security with Cybercrime Magazine

Shortage of skilled candidates in the cyber security sector has received a lot of attention as the threat of cyber breaches continues to grow. Interestingly, 2021 will see 3.5 million unfilled cyber security jobs globally, up from one million positions in 2014, and with many of the candidates who apply not possessing the right qualifications, there is a definite shortfall in the market. In a Cybercrime Magazine podcast, William Rimington, Managing Director in the Cyber Risk practice of Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps, discusses the importance of proactive cyber security, hiring a well-rounded cyber professional, outsourcing cyber security functions and much more.

According to William, a career as a cyber security specialist requires more than just technical skills. The right candidate will need to work well under pressure and within a team, continuously learning and adapting to new ways of approaching security. Given the shortage of talent, William further discusses which aspects of cyber security can be kept in-house and what can be outsourced. He boils it down to cyber maturity and making sure that governance and accountability rest within the organization to maintain oversight.
