The IDC PeerScape emphasizes the critical need for increased diversity within the security sector to address the skill shortage. It argues that embracing diversity — in terms of gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation as well as in thought and experience — can enhance problem solving, innovation, and profitability. By acknowledging the issue, acting with intent, and diversifying personal networks, organizations can attract and retain a more diverse and skilled workforce, ultimately benefiting the industry at large.

"Addressing the security skills shortage demands we broaden our horizons and embrace inclusivity at every level," said Duncan Brown, group vice president IDC. "Diversity is not just right; it is smart for business."
