How cloud saved the security industry
A year ago our sister publication IT Pro was warning that an IT security skills shortage could leave UK PLC at risk of attack for the next 20 years, blaming this on a decline in computer science teaching over the previous decade. I can't help but wonder, as a keen follower of the IT security business over the years, whether this trend is true within the cloud. Indeed, this should come as no surprise as much of what can be summed up as 'the cloud knell of doom' over the last few years quite simply hasn't panned out in the way the naysayers predicted.
