What You Need to Know

Healthcare Cybersecurity Webinar Series

A recent article from Computer Weekly shared that over one-third of cybersecurity professionals plan to leave cybersecurity. This stat is alarming, given the current shortage of cybersecurity expertise. In fact, 63% of respondents to an ISACA report shared they had unfilled cybersecurity positions. Almost the same percentage, 62%, stated their team was understaffed, taking more than six months to fill open positions.

The lack of IT and cybersecurity professionals is nothing new, but it’s getting worse, not better. Unfilled positions are putting an extra workload on existing teams leading to burnout and increased risk to patients.
