Cybersecurity Companies in Chile
Companies increase cybersecurity investment in Chile
Computer security is increasing every day in chilean companies due to dangers they are facing from constant cyberattacks that put their infrastructure and computer security at risk.
In 2018, different companies in Chile invested a total of 156 million dollars in cybersecurity, which implies a growth of 10% compared to 2017, when the investment budget was less than 145 million dollars, while in 2016 it stood at 125 million dollars.
A recent study indicated that 45% of the companies in Chile consider it opportune and a priority to invest in security and IT technology.
“In 2019 cyberattacks intensified by 20% compared to other years, on the other hand, growth in investment by Chilean companies in cybersecurity also grew by 18%, this due to the increase exponential number of attacks on these companies”, commented José Domingo Abogabir, CEO Managing Director of Measured Security.
The deficit of professionals in the area of computer security reaches up to 90% and many of these companies find it difficult to hire specialists in cybersecurity. Only between 6 and 8% of people are prepared to work in this area.
Another of the biggest challenges Chile faces in terms of cybersecurity issues is that there are not enough educational institutions that offer this career as an attraction to meet the requirements of many companies in this area. Currently, work is being done in educational institutions to create new curricula on computer security, on the other hand, educational spaces are being created where courses and diplomas are offered to guarantee constant learning in professionals.
