Business need for workforce development
While the adoption of information and communication technology creates many new economic opportunities, there are inherent risks. Cybersecurity challenges significantly impact today’s interconnected digital economy.
Cyber Benab understands the intrinsic economic opportunities and does not underestimate the importance of developing a workforce with the competency required to protect critical infrastructure. Organisations welcome digital transformation to improve value chain activities but are held back by the lack of workforce training.
Education for social transformation (EST) affects existing knowledge limiting economic growth, even if the perceived values do not readily provide a return on investment (ROI).
Cybersecurity is a cost centre that does not provide ROI. Investment in controls to mitigate cybersecurity risk requires continuous efforts and spending on activities with no visible ROI. The duality of risk, as avoidance or opportunity, can be reviewed in insurance investments. Here, the expected losses are known, and the impact is slow and based on individual or organisational behaviour. Therefore, the shifting landscape of threats, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures are factors that highlight the importance of developing workforce skills.
