Hamilton Barnes stories

Hamilton Barnes emerges as a critical voice on the shifting sands of the cybersecurity landscape in the UK, particularly as it pertains to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). With a keen eye on the industry's labour market dynamics, Barnes delves into the intricate challenges faced by SMEs, attributing a considerable part of these challenges to an ageing workforce. This demographic trend, according to Barnes, not only exacerbates the skills shortage, currently estimated at 160,000 cybersecurity professionals, but also contributes to salary escalations that ultimately make it financially impractical for SMEs to compete for top talent in the cybersecurity domain.
