When talking to CISOs, it’s not uncommon for the subject of the security shortage to come up. That is, the scarily small number of qualified security experts out there these days, and the high price tag they come with when they do pop their heads up. As the demand for security talent increases while the supply lags behind, the outlook for finding talented security professionals will become even more challenging and expensive.
So, how can MSPs help clients address this shifting skill set and subsequent shortage? That is a question our featured 501er this week, Marco Technologies, No. 14 on our list, seeks to answer.
We sat down with Mike Burgard, chief information security officer at Marco, to discuss security talent being so expensive these days and what small to midsize MSPs can do about it.
