Re: Another good one
@Dr T  And at the rate of technological advancement on the bad guys' side, even A.I.-based security tools (or anything else we might come up with) aren't going to keep up for that long.

Another good one
"Can anyone here sell me security products that will work in 20 years?

Answer is mainly no, unless we hand over our security to Artificial Intelligence that learns the environment and advances itself. I believe we will come there but not likely in 20 years.

Re: Lack of talent
I believe there is tenant, it is just underpaid and not put in charge. Most strategic security decisions are made at the top, not on the security staff level.

Re: Lack of talent
I agree but I would be more worried about the end-users than security staff. At the end of the day there is actually no lack of security measures, there is lack of attention to it.

Automated home
I like the one which says "Who's responsible when a smart city crashes?" Of course when we automate everting at home, what happens when those devices not work? Think about it: You will not be able to get inside the house, refrigerator will not respond to you, you may starve. :--))

Re: Lack of talent
Assuming there is talent to hire in the first place.

There is a palpable shortage of IT security talent in the market. 

Even when a budget is set up for security, and reasonably skilled talent is found, the budget quickly gets swallowed up by salaries that the skilled and experienced IT security professionals expect. 

Supply and demand is a beast to fight with when there are extremes at each end of the equation.

Lack of talent
Understaffed and poorly trained information security staff may be one crucial reason why vulnerabilities is still such a big issue. Lack of enough budget for this is also a problem. If you think about it, budget should be distributed in a way that covers priorities first, right? Yet, you can sometimes see so much misused budget in some enetrprises while they lack the talent they would need. -Susan
