“Good decisions come from good information,” remarked Sri Sridharan, director of the Florida Center for Cybersecurity. “For this report, Gartner looked at many aspects of cybersecurity—from education, workforce demand, and economic factors to technical issues such as incident response capability. Our goal was to take a broad look at the cybersecurity landscape in Florida and compile information that stakeholders across the state can use as they make decisions impacting their organizations.”
