As a follow up to last week’s post about the lack of cybersecurity personnel, this article talks about the increase in attacks and breaches and how it relates to the need for a more robust cybersecurity workforce.
James Trainor, acting assistant director of the FBI’s Cyber Division, said the agency used to learn about a new, large-scale data breach every two or three weeks. “Now, it is close to every two to three days.”
Trainor also said the cybersecurity industry needs to “double or triple” its workforce in order to keep up with hacking threats.
