Feedback form is now closed.
The industry relies upon a strong and knowledgeable talent base to protect both commercial and national interests, but without a more universal and standardized education model we still have an overall cybersecurity workforce shortage.

This session, designed both for leaders and learners, will explore the current training landscape, describe a model for the new/emerging cybersecurity profession and introduce a career model based on skills/knowledge that are mapped to the field. Participants will leave this session understanding all the tools available for cybersecurity managers to effectively grow the profession from the bottom up, top down, and through the middle via upskilling, reskilling, continuing education and mentoring. They will understand the foundations upon which a framework can be built to address the needs of the individual and the profession as a whole. Finally, participants will recognize the optimal way to balance qualitative measures in the cybersecurity profession (i.e. degree, certifications, etc) and qualitative ones (i.e. continuing education, practice, experience).
