Despite there being a surplus of available security professionals due to the down economy, 80 percent of hiring managers are having a tough time finding the right person, said a survey released Wednesday by accreditation provider (ISC)2. Respondents blamed the difficulty on a lack of desired skills, lack of available recruits within a certain area and salary demands that could not be met due to tight budgets. But the survey also found that 62 percent of respondents don’t expect future budget cuts this year. — DK
