Over the past year, Computing has spoken to experts within the IT industry who believe that the UK has an IT security skills gap.
Research has supported these claims, with research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan finding that the number of security professionals globally is about 2.25 million and the requirement by 2015 is 4.25 million.
