“Rapid adoption of mobile technology, social media and cloud computing in the workplace is creating a security problem for IT departments worldwide as they struggle to keep pace with demands, according to a survey released this week by security certification firm (ISC)2.

The 2011 (ISC)² Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS), which was conducted by industry analysts Frost & Sullivan for (ISC)2, finds an increasing pressure to provide even more services to organizations to protect not just the organization’s systems and data, but also its reputation, its end-users, and its customers. But the professionals charged with doing this are not prepared, according to the study’s authors, who note the results reveal a clear gap in skills needed to protect organizations in the near future. “
