Never thought I would say no to Nutella, but … NO Nutella!

Just saw this suggestion from Nutella on passwords. I thought oh wow really?!!? and then “This is why we can’t have nice things”.

This is exactly why we do NOT allot dictionary words in out passwords, and why user training is so important for us to raise user awareness.

I will just leave my slide from CISSP domain 5 hang there for a few.

Cybercrime Damage Costs $6 Trillion in 2021, Cybersecurity Market Data

Cybersecurity Ventures predicts cybercrime damages will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021

Cybercriminal activity is one of the biggest challenges that humanity will face in the next two decades.

– Steve Morgan, Editor-In-Chief

Menlo Park, Calif. — Oct. 16, 2017

Cybercrime is the greatest threat to every company in the world, and one of the biggest problems with mankind. The impact on society is reflected in the numbers.

Last year, Cybersecurity Ventures predicted that cybercrime will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015. This represents the greatest transfer of economic wealth in history, risks the incentives for innovation and investment, and will be more profitable than the global trade of all major illegal drugs combined.

The cybercrime prediction stands, and over the past year it has been corroborated by hundreds of major media outlets, universities and colleges, senior government officials, associations, industry experts, the largest technology and cybersecurity companies, and cybercrime fighters globally.

The damage cost projections are based on historical cybercrime figures including recent year-over-year growth, a dramatic increase in hostile nation state sponsored and organized crime gang hacking activities, and a cyber attack surface which will be an order of magnitude greater in 2021 than it is today.

Cybercrime costs include damage and destruction of data, stolen money, lost productivity, theft of intellectual property, theft of personal and financial data, embezzlement, fraud, post-attack disruption to the normal course of business, forensic investigation, restoration and deletion of hacked data and systems, and reputational harm.

Cybersecurity Workforce Shortage Projected at 1.8 Million by 2022

Cybersecurity Workforce Shortage Projected at 1.8 Million by 2022

The results from the eighth Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS) have been released this week. The workforce gap is estimated to be growing, with the projected shortage reaching 1.8 million professionals by 2022. While the gap is not news, the fact that it is growing is of great concern to an already exhausted workforce. The question of how to fill the gap has been answered, and millennials are an integral part of the plan. “For years, we’ve known about the impending shortage of the information security workforce, as evidenced by our study year over year,” said David Shearer, CEO,…

Cybersecurity Unemployment Rate Drops To Zero Percent

Cybersecurity Unemployment Rate Drops To Zero Percent

There’s a job for everyone with cybersecurity experience.

– Steve Morgan, Editor-In-Chief

The demand for cybersecurity professionals will increase to approximately 6 million globally by 2019, according to some industry experts cited by the Palo Alto Networks Research Center.

Earlier this year, Cybersecurity Ventures predicted there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021, up from an estimate of 1 million by Cisco in 2014.

Almost anyone with cybersecurity experience and realistic salary expectations can find immediate employment. There may be a small percentage of the cyber workforce who are in between jobs, some who have resigned to explore new opportunities, and others who are unrealistic about which positions they qualify for (and the compensation commensurate with their experience) — but there’s an abundance of positions available for cybersecurity pros.

Cybercrime damages are predicted to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015… and the world will spend $1 trillion cumulatively over the next five years from 2017 to 2021 on cybersecurity products and services to combat cybercrime. These figures suggest the cyber employment problem will get worse before it gets better.

We interviewed several industry experts who corroborate the unemployment rate, and share the recruiting challenges that come with it.
