Dearth of 3.5 million professionals with skills in cyber domain : Guy Diedrich

Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 18 (UNI) “As we are gearing up for embracing digital age, the challenge we face is dearth of talent, and it can be overcome by providing excellent facilities for research and academia,” Dr Guy Diedrich, Vice President and Global Innovation Officer, Cisco Systems, USA said.

“Today, we are short of 3.5 million professionals with skills in the cyber domain. All of the great ideas and innovations come from research and academia,” Dr Diedrich said while delivering a keynote address at the inaugural ceremony of the third International Conference on Computing and Network Communications (CoCoNet'19), organized by Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K) from December 18-21, on its new campus in Technocity at Pallipuram near here on Wednesday.

“Digital age is all about connecting people and things. Cisco has about 70 per cent of the world’s traffic passing through its equipment. We stalk 20 billion cyber attacks per day,” he said, adding that it’s getting worse.

“Cyber attackers don’t acknowledge borders. We have to create a unified security approach globally. Each individual technology doesn’t talk to the other. We need to create a long chain of individual links that don’t connect,” Dr Diedrich said.
