Ransomware Guide for Healthcare Providers
Everyone agrees that there is a dangerous shortage of employees with security skills. More than 209,000 cyber security jobs in the U.S. are unfilled, and postings are up 74% over the past five years, according to a 2015 analysis of numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

What to do? There is no quick fix. As cyber threats are morphing daily into more venomous versions, it is hard for even seasoned IT security professional to keep up. That is why you need to optimize your InfoSec team...

Tips to Optimize your InfoSec Team:

1

Training is Essential

Colleges need to offer more cyber security courses and degrees. Current employees need to have corporate sponsorship for continuing education. It behooves employers to keep their IT staff up to date. The cost of a breach is far greater than that of education.

2

Stay Focused on IT Security

Many security specialists are put to work solving basic problems. Security teams are often forced to fight fires rather than move forward due to the overwhelming number of security alerts they deal with on a daily basis.

3

Foster Mindshare

Social media can also help IT security professionals keep abreast of current threats and solutions. LinkedIn, MeetUps, IT security forums and industry specific groups (ISACA, ISSA, SANS) foster mindshare. Here, professionals are free to discuss their latest security threats and learn how others have tackled the problem.
