Join us live and you might just get hired by Deloitte!
We’ve all heard the stories of millions of available jobs in InfoSec that go unfilled because of a lack of qualified applicants. Our guest can attest to this not only in his own organization but also those he serves. And even though offensive jobs are sexy and fun, the vast majority of jobs are defensive in focus. Just think of all of the positions on-prem and in the cloud dedicated to infrastructure, endpoint security, log management, MFA, DLP, help desk and the list goes on and on. Now compare that to the number of pen testers out there. Blue team members dwarf red teamers. And, although companies would love to hire humans, doesn’t it make sense for them to at least look at AI as a solution to the skills gap?
In fact, the bots are already here and they’re marching unabated throughout all areas of technology and business. Just a couple weeks ago, Microsoft released, Maximising the AI Opportunity, a research report on how AI is changing the UK. Nearly half of bosses believe their current business model won’t even exist by 2023, 41% believe dramatic change is coming within the next five years, and just 18% of workers say they are actively learning new skills to help them keep up. Those that have already begun their AI journey are doing 5% better on factors like productivity, performance and business outcomes than those that have not. And those investing in developing underlying values, ethics and processes for their use of AI are outperforming those that are not by 9%.
It’s that last sentence that points to a huge opportunity. It’s the humans that determine what has value, the ethics behind where and how AI is used and the processes created to make sure AI doesn’t make horrendous errors. And it’s those humans with purple skills that will be best positioned for the jobs of the future. And those jobs are in high demand now, always will be and pay incredibly well. Are you ready for the coming revolution in cybersecurity or will you let the bots pass you by?
