Security Costs continue to rise - And skilled staff is harder to find
While no surprise, the cost of cyber-security continues to rise. Gartner notes an 8.7% year-over-year increase in IT security spending last year.

vectors — are occurring at the processor level. Advanced side-channel
threats, like MDS, Spoiler, Spectre, Meltdown, Foreshadow and
PortSmash, are shifting the cyber war to an entirely new arena, which
is extremely difficult to monitor or patch.
