  • Finding and keeping cybersecurity talent is challenging – do you have a pipeline for talent all the way up to the senior level? What skills should you be hiring?
  • Security threats and vulnerabilities are constantly changing – when was the last time you updated your cybersecurity program? How are you keeping on top of trends in threat detection?
