(ISC)² Cybersecurity Workforce Shortage Continues to Grow Worldwide, to 1.8 Million in Five Years

Attracting and Retaining Millennial Workers Vital to Closing the Gap

Clearwater FL, February 13, 2017 — According to new research from the Center for Cyber Safety and Education™ (the Center) — part of its eighth Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS) – sponsored by (ISC)²® and Booz Allen Hamilton, a serious talent shortage looms in the information security workforce. The survey and analysis, which includes feedback from over 19,000 information security professionals worldwide, indicates that employers must look to millennials to fill the projected 1.8 million information security workforce gap that is estimated to exist by 2022.  This is an increase of 20 percent from the 1.5 million worker shortfall forecast by the 2015 GISWS.

A: Faster restores.

Answer


A: Differential backup: Backs up everything since the last Full backup. Does not clear the archive bit. Faster to restore since we just need 2 tapes for a full restore, the full and the differential. Backups take longer tan the incrementals, we are backing everything since the last full.
