Is your company struggling to maintain your IT and security talent? You’re not alone, according to a new report from ISACA.
A reported 66% of companies are experiencing difficulty in retaining their existing security staff, and have unfilled positions within their organisations for these roles. This is up 7% from just last year.
This echoes reports from Cybersecurity Ventures that there were 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs in 2021, with the prediction that the shortage will continue through 2025.
Reasons why professionals are leaving these roles include:
- Being recruited by other companies
- A lack of financial incentives to remain in a role
- High levels of stress
- Limited growth opportunities
- Lack of management support
- Work culture and environment
