There’s been a lot of buzz in the media in recent years about a cybersecurity staffing shortage. While it has certainly been a challenge for some companies to fill their cyber teams with great talent, CyberSN President Mark Aiello points out in his recent piece in Forbes, “Four (Self-Inflicted) Roadblocks To Finding Quality Cyber Professionals,” some of the struggles companies have could be of their own making.

In his piece, Aiello discusses four common roadblocks and provides a clear fix for companies who are looking for a clear path to filling their cybersecurity roles. You can read Aiello’s full article in Forbes here and get more tips on how to ace cybersecurity recruitment on the CyberSN blog.
