Most respondents (53%) who participated in the survey released by Intel Security claim the cyber-security talent deficit is worse than the skills shortage in other IT professions. Intrusion detection is one of the cyber-security skills in "critically short supply," according to the report.
Intrusion detection involves discovering potentially harmful activity that could compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of information, according to the SANS Institute. There are a few common types of intrusion detection. Network-based detection attempts to detect unauthorized behavior based on network traffic. Host-based detection tries to find illicit activity on a specific device. Physical detection involves finding threats on physical systems.
