Recently was reading a blog (German language) about Dekra Labor Market Report 2018
“More hacker attacks require more IT security personnel”
And was really very surprised about the outcome and what the author was saying in this blog.
I have read your blog meal but ask me now times very seriously from whether the dates of Dekra Labor Market Reports 2018 vote at all?
The study of what you refer to is only addressed to a very small part of the whole market and not specifically addressed to the various environments such as automotive, finance, social media, both in the professional and the private sphere.
That there are not enough professionals is not really true, I myself have also made a study under my network and come to another result then you, what I see is that the requirement of various operations in Germany is not really directed to security but more on the knowledge of the specialists where I sit down.
According to the sample of 313 job advertisements for IT security specialists they refer to, employers from almost all economic sectors are found, but if I examine this for example on LinkedIn, for example, do I come to completely different values then you? Namely there are 265 open to supplement.
As you say, “Technical precautions, such as firewalls or anti-virus software, are ideally embedded in a comprehensive security concept of different strategic, organizational, and technical building blocks.” Are not adequate enough to provide a guarantee for the security of the data of the customer or a person.
If you see within the new GDPR /DSGVO you will very quickly come to the conclusion that less than 12% of all operated in Germany are not meal Compliant are to the GDPR /DSGVO. Man holds a green picture in front of the customers but on the background the implementation is still in progress and the cause of this is that these are started much too late with the introduction of the GDPR /DSGVO.
I can only say that the information that spreads host in the Internet is not based on reality but on a dream image of these companies. Or do you think that a board has really thought now what would happen now if there were an audit approaching or announced. I did this recently for one of the biggest insurance companies in Dusseldorf and unfortunately, I came to the conclusion that in reality it looks very bad with the security in Germany.
Let’s write her a letter
Hello Mrs. Schuster,
I have read through your blog many times, but now I am very serious about whether the data from Dekra Labor Market Reports 2018 is correct?
The study that you are referring to is only aimed at a very small part of the whole market and not specifically aimed at the various areas such as automotive, finance, social media, both in the professional and private environment.
The fact that there are not enough specialists is not really true, I have also done a study myself under my network and come to a different result then you, what I see is that the requirements of various companies in Germany are not really directed towards security but more the knowledge of the specialists where I also report.
In the sample you mentioned of 313 job advertisements for IT security specialists, you will find employers from almost all branches of the economy, but if I investigate LinkedIn, for example, I come up with completely different values, then you? Namely there are 256 vacancies to be added.
As you say, “Technical precautions such as firewalls or anti-virus software are ideally embedded in a comprehensive security concept made up of various strategic, organizational and technical components”. Are not adequate enough to provide a guarantee for the security of the data of the customer or a person.
If you see within the new GDPR, you will quickly come to the conclusion that less than 12% of all businesses in Germany are not even compliant with the GDPR. Man hold a green picture in front of the customers but on the background the implementation is still in full swing and the cause of this is that these companies started much too late with the introduction of the GDPR.
I can only say that the information given by the host on the Internet is not based on reality but on a dream of this company. Or do you think that a board has really thought about what will happen now when there is an audit for the door. I recently did this for one of the largest insurance companies in Düsseldorf and unfortunately I came to the conclusion that the security in Germany is actually very bad.

Very surprising with these results, which in my supervision do not correspond to reality.
Hello Mrs. Schuster,
Thank you for your comments, but still no answer to my position?
Lack of competence is the direct hit!
Where should she come from? There are no competent training courses for safety because there are virtually no people in this country who have even the slightest idea about it.
Everybody claiming to be an expert in security or even a security architect, but when I am going to ask them some questions about this than there is only silence?
Schools, Universities, Teachers, Lecturers? Just ridiculous! And we still were talking about Germany!
Install any ineffective security software -yes –big mouth – yes – that’s it. Does anyone have any idea how a microprocessor works and can program it correctly? – High-level languages without knowing what’s going on – yes – that’s it. How exactly does an operating system work?
None. And that is the prerequisite for putting the word computer security in the mouth at all.
Safety is a top priority! Others have overtaken you!
Throw away your superfluous intentions before others do it for you and use your lifetime for what makes sense. That’s my recommendation 🙂
And do not always put the responsibility on others – a shortage of skilled workers – ridiculous!
Yes, what’s that – what does that have to do with the year of birth?
Concerning. Motivation must I contradict a bit again – is the responsibility for others already deported again?
How should the offspring be motivated if they MUST go to THIS school and live in THIS society? The last generations of industry have messed up their future completely. And you demand that you also participate motivated?
It can be seen that in this insanity motivation is rather difficult to impossible? On the contrary, there is the possibility that the offspring will go completely different ways – we will see…
Denial is likely to be the logical beginning…
