Aberdeen's IT Security and IT GRC practice published a three-part series on current trends in building and maintaining a security, risk and compliance workforce, based on insights from a 4Q2012 survey of more than 100 organizations. In "technology-hiring.aspx">Hiring in IT Security, Risk and Compliance: The Current and Future Skills Shortage," vice president and research fellow Derek Brink noted that implications of a current and future shortage of hands-on skills include growth in software-as-a-service (SaaS) deployment models, increased reliance on professional services for highly specialized skills and industry-specific experience, increased investments in professional certifications, and increased investments in security awareness and training.

In "technology-hiring.aspx">Hiring in IT Security, Risk and Compliance: What Companies Want (and Where They'll Find It)," Brink writes that the most important attributes in hiring candidates -- and simultaneously the most difficult to find -- include industry experience and specific technical skills, along with professional certifications and formal education. Successful enterprise security and compliance initiatives also rely on "softer" skills, however, such as communication, cross-functional facilitation, and the ability to influence without direct authority.
