Back in the day, to most companies, cyber skills were limited to technical teams for fixing laptops and changing passwords. Fast forward to the current time, security teams need continual upskilling, and developers require ongoing education to code securely. According to Bristol-based Immersive Labs, organisations need to hire the right talent for the ever-changing requirements to respond effectively to cyber incidents and crises.
James Hadley, CEO & Founder of Immersive Labs, says, “With cyber risk becoming a problem for a growing number of business functions, cybersecurity knowledge and skills should no longer be the preserve of a few technical people hidden away in a back office. Everyone from the teams who build software, to the CEO, now need to play their part in addressing a pervasive company issue. This requires unlocking and evidencing skills in a much broader group of people.”
