3 keys to understand the cyber security skills gap (and deal with it)

Look at it in all its dimensions before jumping to ready-made solutions

You don’t have to go far to find cyber security professionals complaining about skills shortages, but the problem has several dimensions which have to be understood and mapped out before we can start to figure out possible solutions.
