Cybersecurity, also referred to as information technology security, focuses on protecting computers, networks, programs, and data from unintended or unauthorized access, change, or destruction. Government agencies, the military, corporations, financial institutions, hospitals, and other groups collect, process, and store a great deal of confidential information on computers and transmit that data across networks to other computers. With the growing volume and sophistication of cyber attacks, ongoing attention is required to protect sensitive business and personal information, as well as safeguard national security.

There is scant extant literature on the current cybersecurity labor crisis and its future effect on global business risk and security. Therefore, in one volume this publication will cover the different issues associated with this worldwide dilemma and potential solutions. The benefit to this field of research is self-evident.

Target Audience
The primary target audience for this proposed publication is scholars involved in cybersecurity and information technology. The secondary target audience is practitioners involved in these two areas.
