EU Governments have warned in recent weeks that Russia or its allies could conduct cyber attacks in retribution for sanctions, recommending banks to strengthen monitoring, scenario-planning, and deploying additional staff in case hostile activity surges.

2. Demand for Cybersecurity experts at an all-time high

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, companies have forced many employees to work remotely and have seen a spike in cyber-attacks. According to a survey conducted by Global cyber researcher and publisher Cybersecurity Ventures by 2021, it has been numerically announced that the number of jobs for cybersecurity professionals is falling behind demand worldwide.

To solve this problem, companies must struggle to find a few certified cybersecurity professionals available that can be used at a higher cost as they struggle with increasing online attacks.
