Most Indian enterprises have unfilled cybersecurity positions: study


Some 60% of Indian organisations that participated in a recent study agreed they have unfilled cybersecurity positions, 62% of them said they would take 3 to 6 months to fill a cybersecurity position with a qualified candidate, compared with 47% globally and 42% of enterprises felt their cybersecurity teams were understaffed, found a study by U.S.-based ISACA, professional organisation focused on technology.
Some 65% of organisations have experienced difficulty in retaining qualified cybersecurity professionals while 59% believed that only less than half of applicants were qualified for the position they were applying for, as per ISACA State of Cybersecurity 2022 Survey released on Wednesday.
The survey showed an increase in unfilled cybersecurity positions and a lack of qualified talent in India.
“Cybersecurity skills demand in the country was slated to grow, reflecting the global trend of an increasing skills gap in cybersecurity and a workforce unable to meet industry demand, ‘‘ said R.V Raghu, ISACA Ambassador in India.
Some 33% of respondents in India indicated that their organisations were experiencing more cyberattacks currently compared to a year ago. Organisational reputation (86%), data breach concerns (78%) and cyberattack on the supply chain or business disruption (63%) were the top-of-the-mind concern related to cyberattacks for these enterprises, according to the study.
The survey featured insights from more than 2,000 cybersecurity professionals around the globe, including India, and examined cybersecurity staffing and skills, resources, cyber threats and cybersecurity maturity.
