Chief Information Officer in Manufacturing, 10,001+ employees
I am outsourcing my cybersecurity needs. My biggest issue is that our organization doesn't believe in a remote workforce. Office work only these days that limits who wants to work.

We are trying to build from within. I am identifying sysadmins or network admins who desire to transition to security and slowly transition them to more security roles.
VP of IT in Media, 201 - 500 employees
We are training our DevOps to become DevSecOps.
CIO in Education, 201 - 500 employees
Outsourcing until the cost to partner exceeds the cost to insource.
vp information technology in Consumer Goods, 51 - 200 employees

CMO in Education, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
For L1 and L1.5 Resources (Freshers): We are training freshers on one side to comply
For L2 Resources (With 2 to 3 Years Experience): Fetching from the market is fine. But takes more time as the quality of resources are not adequate.
For 3 Resources (With 3 to 7 Years Experience): This is a difficult task as quality resources are tough to find.  Hence we keep the hunt on all the time. References are good!!
