NowSecure #MobSec5
In honor of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we’d like to highlight yet an other risk to mobile security: that of the global IT security skills shortage. As many as 3.5 million cybersecurity jobs may go unfilled by 2021, according to Cybersecurity Ventures.
To conquer the skills shortage, companies should consider new pools of talent and technological innovations to fill vital cybersecurity gaps. Options include seeking out veterans, women, broadening the scope, developing internally and automating security functions. You can find our detailed tips here.

  • WhatsApp fixes Android and iOS video call exploit
  • Google limits developer access to SMS and call log APIs
  • Employers can take these steps to guard against mobile phishing
