We are almost at the end of another year. Last year I wrote a diary on Talent Shortage  and from what I have seen, it is still difficult to find the right people with the right skills . I read more than ever, enterprises have to start coming up with creative recruitment strategies to hire the next generation of security professionals (IP-based skillsets) and develop strong training programs to bring them up-to-speed with the right security skills needed to defend or audit their enterprise. Obviously, you can learn a lot of things in a classroom but some skills can only be acquired in the real world. Anyone willing to learn or is curious about how attacks methods works and how to defend against them, has strong ethics and problem solving skills sound like a candidate you might want to coach and hire.
