A global study by Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and industry analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) shows that the alarming cybersecurity skills shortage problem raged on for the fifth consecutive year in 2021. This skills shortage, which affects 57 percent of organizations, has resulted in increasing workloads for cybersecurity teams, unfilled cybersecurity job vacancies, and high burnout levels among cybersecurity team members.

A relatively new tool for cybersecurity teams called Sigma rules offers a mitigation option for the skills crisis. It may not completely eliminate the issue, but it can provide a significant contribution in giving teams breathing room as they deal with the serious impact of not having enough people to address aggressive and evolving cyber threats.
