Companies are unaware of the various risks within their IT infrastructure and hence fail to have any cyber security countermeasures in place until its far too late.
There are also very few experts in cyber security available in the Indian IT industry. The shortage of cyber security professionals is increasing day by day as the IT sector in India is trying to keep up with the fast changing requirements of its clients. A number of such experts have come in the recent past with high profile assignments such as security analyst and cyber security analyst, but there are no other cyber security experts to support them. There are many organizations looking for skilled professionals to work as consultants to their company and for this reason there is a shortage of qualified IT experts in the country.
