Australia is facing an increasing number of cybersecurity threats while simultaneously suffering a severe cybersecurity skill shortage, a pair of reports found.
The Center for Strategic and International Studies and Intel Security Inc. produced a joint study on the international cybersecurity workforce that surveyed eight countries: Australia, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Mexico, the U.K. and the U.S. The study found that 88 percent of respondents in Australia and Mexico believe there is a lack of technical cybersecurity skills, ranking at the bottom of the countries surveyed.
Robert Half, a professional recruiting firm, also found that Australia’s demand for cybersecurity professionals is far outpacing the number of available, while 64 percent of chief information officers say that cyberattacks have increased over the last year.
Even as Australia faced this cybersecurity workforce deficit it made calls on France for a “ferocious commitment” to data security of the recently-hacked French defense contractor that is building Australia’s submarine fleet.
