TYSONS CORNER, VA April 20, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — Angela Messer, executive vice president for the predictive intelligence business of Booz Allen Hamilton’s (NYSE: BAH) strategic innovation group, has said that the Internet of Things presents new threats as well as opportunities for information security professionals, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.
Messer, in remarks Thursday that accompany the release of the latest Global Information Security Workforce Study, recommends that companies invest in cyber talent and build a more proactive, intuitive workforce.
“We’re seeing greater adoption of advanced analytics and tools that can help security professionals convert intelligence into improving their cyber operations, but today’s workforce is already stretched thin, with many reporting remediation and reacting to alerts as their primary focus, ” said Messer, an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2015.
“As organizations shift their focus from defending within firewalls to defending entire cyber ecosystems, cybersecurity professionals will face unprecedented demands.”
Findings of the seventh GISWS report reveal a growing interest in outsourced security services amid a lack of in-house skills in an environment dealing with security technology sprawl.
