Target Data Breach Shines Focus on Lack of IT Security Talent

Target Data Breach Shines Focus on Lack of IT Security Talent

TheStreet (Feb. 26, 2014) — Hewlett-Packard's head of security products Art Gilliland says cyber attacks, like the one at Target late last year, highlight the need for more skilled workers in the IT security space. Gilliland says the latest figures show there is a 40-percent vacancy rate in IT security jobs in 2014 and a 58-percent vacancy of jobs at the supervisor level. HP, along with the Ponemon Institute, also found roughly 56-percent of companies do not have chief information security officer as part of their C-Suite team. Gilliland says companies are also competing with each other on the pay front where the competition for talent is fierce and some aren't able to offer competitive salaries.

Intel Creates Group Aimed at Setting "Internet of Things" Standards

TheStreet (July 8, 2014) — Intel announced it's established a new group focused on setting the standard for the "Internet of Things," which will compete with an alliance already created by Qualcomm. Intel said it's created the Open Interconnect Consortium, which aims to establish how smart devices can work together and connect to everyday household items. Members of the group, which includes Broadcom, Dell and Samsung, among others, will donate intellectual property that all members can use. Instead of joining the group already in existence, Intel created a competing alliance to address security and other issues it says are not adequately handled by the AllSeen group, according to Reuters.
