As IT security threats continue to increase in prevalence and complexity, organizations are responding with larger IT security budgets to better monitor, manage, report and mitigate to them. The problem? The demand for security skills is now outpacing supply.
Today, there’s an estimated 208,000 vacant security positions across the world—a number that is expected to grow to 1.5 million by 2020. In this upcoming webinar, Cognition and the Future of Security, Sandy Bird, Global CTO of IBM Security, will discuss the key to curbing this labour shortfall: cognitive security.
As humans, we sense and respond to situations using a lifetime of experience and learning. When an organization’s security systems can do the same, it arms its security professionals with the collective knowledge and instinct to respond to threats with greater confidence at scale and speed. A cognitive business outthinks and outpaces threats with security systems that can understand, reason and learn.

With the emergence of mobile devices and the BYOD revolution, IT security has evolved immensely over the past few years, yet we always seem to fall further and further behind. Why?
