Cybersecurity’s Skills Shortage: Creating New Pathways For The Next Generation
Supply and demand challenges are something that we are all too familiar with at the moment. In cybersecurity, demand for talented individuals as well as qualified and experienced personnel has long outstripped supply, and the challenge is only growing as the number of new recruits to the industry fails to keep up.
But why is that an issue? What can we as an industry do to attract more first-time individuals into the talent pool and then onboard them into the actual profession? Do we need new approaches to education and professional development? Do we need to change hiring practices? Do we need to change the culture? According to the most recent independent research from (ISC)2, it’s all of the above.
We will discuss the challenges and the perceptions of those looking at a career in cybersecurity, as well as practical solutions for overcoming the skills gap the industry continues to face.
