The National Security Agency (NSA) published an advisory that addresses the risks behind Transport Layer Security Inspection (TLSI) and provides mitigation measures for weakened security in organizations that use TLSI products. TLSI (aka TLS break and inspect) is the process through which enterprises can inspect encrypted traffic with the help of a dedicated product such as a proxy device, a firewall, intrusion detection or prevention systems (IDS/IPS) that can decrypt and re-encrypt traffic encrypted with TLS.
At a time when cyber risks are proliferating at a faster rate than at any time in history, organizations around the globe are struggling to find talented professionals who can help them defend against these risks.

That the security industry is cripplingly understaffed is not a new revelation. Since 2015, the number of organizations reporting a “problematic shortage” increases year over year, with 53% of organizations reporting this gap in 2018-2019. This is a pervasive, global problem and one that shows no signs of slowing as the cybersecurity sector grows and plays an ever more important role in day-to-day business functions. What does represent a new revelation is that in many cases, the answer to this skills shortage is already on the payroll.
