The Health Insurer Anthem was breached a couple months ago, resulting in the loss of 80 million customer records. Industry analysts are still talking about Anthem’s cybersecurity practices, but they are missing the forest for the trees.

Gartner estimates that digital businesses will require 50% less IT business process workers and 500% more digital jobs by 2018.
