This article focuses on the organisation's IT security skills. According to Gartner: "Sixty per cent of companies will outsource at least one perimeter security technology." According to Rick Stiffler, Cisco Systems' senior manager for advanced technology training in the U.S.: "Unless the IT security professional has had previous military or governmental security experience, they'll find it really tough to excel in this emerging world of security specialists." In fact, companies are woefully short of security skills among their IT professionals at all levels.
