Most IT pros know that getting the board to understand cybersecurity issues can be an uphill battle. Even more alarmingly, some of these high-ranking company officials do understand there’s a threat – but they don’t understand that it’s a big deal.

No matter how many qualified techs there are out there, finding good IT employees has never exactly been an easy task. And it’s only going to get harder to find security-minded professionals, according to a recent report.
