While it’s clear the cybersecurity industry is experiencing a talent shortfall, the nature of that shortfall is less clear. Data shows both a short-term crunch of experienced talent and long-term issues pertaining to the cybersecurity pipeline that stem from K-12 evangelism and awareness issues, a lack of diversity, and a narrowness in cybersecurity credentials sought by employers. Together, these workforce development issues challenge CISOs and security executives looking for talented cybersecurity candidates.
In this ITSP Magazine “The Academy" podcast (the second in a special NTSC series), hosted by ITSP Magazine Founder and Editor-in-Chief Sean Martin, listeners will learn about what's causing the cybersecurity workforce shortage, ways to educate the next generation of cybersecurity workers, and how we can make cybersecurity more diverse. Our expert guests include Marci McCarthy, CEO and President at T.E.N.; Selim Aissi, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer at Ellie Mae; Marene Allison, World Wide VP of Information Security at Johnson and Johnson; and Darren Dillon, CTO - Secure Infrastructure at Microsoft.
