Certification and vacant cyber roles
Interesting survey - I wonder if companies looking to hire individuals with infosec certifications might instead consider hiring those without certifications and instead put them through relevant training? This could have a number of benefits: less expensive to hire, build the security workforce of the future, and increased employee satisfaction. I'm sure there are more benefits too!
