At the recent RSA Conference, FireMon surveyed the attitudes of 350 IT security professionals towards the skills shortage.

The research revealed that when it comes to hiring, 93 percent of respondents think experience is more important than qualifications.  Furthermore, 73 percent said that it didn’t matter whether IT staff were college graduates when it came to getting the job done.

Respondents were split down the middle as to what was more important – good communication skills or the best technical skills.
