AI to Supercharge Cybersecurity Teams – Bridging the Cybersecurity Talent Gap with AI

Abid Khan, Global Head – Cyber Security Strategy and Resilience at HGS, discusses how companies can view AI as a force multiplier that allows them to unlock a range of benefits that make their security teams more efficient, proactive, and insightful.

The global cybersecurity workforce grew by 12.6% between 2022 and 2023, a significant year-over-year climb for any industry, but the talent gap is still far from filled. According to the World Economic Forum, four million workers are needed worldwide in the cybersecurity industry, and with the ongoing growth potential of artificial intelligence, this shortage leaves companies vulnerable to the ever-evolving threat landscape.

The rapid digital transformation across industries has heightened the need for robust cybersecurity measures. Yet, the pool of qualified cybersecurity talent remains small, while the competition to attract and retain these professionals grows stronger.

So, how can organizations bridge this growing gap and strengthen their cybersecurity practices? The answer lies not in replacing human talent, but in strategically leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) to empower existing cybersecurity teams. By viewing AI as a force multiplier, companies can unlock a range of benefits that make their security teams more efficient, proactive, and insightful, ultimately enhancing overall security posture.
