Following new research, Kaspersky Lab finds that only half of under-25s would join the fight against cybercrime, while the other half would use their skills for fun, secretive skills or financial gain. Although nearly 50 percent of young consumers believe that a career in cyber-security would be a good use of their skills, many do not pursue it. Kaspersky points to the lack of opportunities for graduates to gain experience and education in the industry as the cause for that. Seeing as many businesses hire from within and do not offer any kind of any entry-level cyber security roles, the majority of IT pros look to education establishments to be responsible for training new generations of cyber-security professionals. Kaspersky claims that, “this generation is closer to technology than any before… their talent should be harnessed and nurtured for society’s good.”
