Central to the field of economics is the perpetual balancing act between supply and demand. Not enough supply sends prices skyrocketing; a lack of demand means less options and losses for firms. Right now, cybersecurity talent is squarely in the “high demand” zone, with firms scrambling to find qualified cybersecurity experts. Listen to this week’s Cyber 24 podcast where Lynne Doherty of Sumo Logic discusses her path to the cybersecurity field and how we can encourage and support people with an interest in cybersecurity and STEM fields, especially women.
Another question that many firms have thought about: does it pay to move data to the cloud? According to Doherty, it absolutely does. By moving to the cloud, firms gain access to more innovation and efficiency, which can help those firms keep pace with competition. That said, moving to the cloud does pose certain security risks—with careful planning, however, many of these can be negated. Doherty explains some helpful strategies for firms preparing to make the move to cloud and more general strategies for companies who already store data there.
