Cybersecurity talent is in shortage in the Philippines.

According to antivirus software provider Fortinet, the majority of organizations in the Philippines and the rest of Asia are finding it difficult to attract cybersecurity personnel due to a skills deficit, which can wreak havoc on corporate operations.

According to Rashish Pandey, the company’s vice president of marketing and communications, 71 percent of respondents in a recent survey stated they were having trouble finding technology-qualified cybersecurity expertise.

“As more companies implement technologies like cloud and automation, the shortage of cybersecurity expertise has become increasingly acute,” he said.

More cybersecurity employees were indicated by 79 percent of organizations with a board of directors in the survey. As the epidemic spread, the shift to digitization quickened, including remote working and learning arrangements, online payments, and e-commerce.

According to Pandey, 63 percent of respondents indicated that the “skill scarcity results in significant cybersecurity consequences for the firm” as a result of the growing need for cybersecurity personnel.

According to the study, a staff shortfall could result in process and procedure oversights, a failure to be aware of all network hazards, and a lack of time to undertake effective risk assessment and management.

After receiving some training, young cybersecurity experts tend to leave their firms for better income, according to Mario Luis Castaeda, country manager for Fortinet Philippines. “They teach these people, and when they’re marketable after three years, they’re copied by other companies,” he explained.

“They just depart after spending so much to certify their workers.” It’s also a simple option for the corporations poaching them,” he continued.
