CSA Technical Track:

The Cybersecurity Professionals Shortage: How To Tackle the Cybersecurity Skills Gap

Overview

The cybersecurity skills shortage is putting enterprises at risk. Worse, it shows no sign of abating. It’s no secret that companies are facing a huge cybersecurity talent shortage. The word’s been out for several years that many positions requiring cybersecurity skills are going unfilled.

How big is the gap? Cyberseek reported there are around 1.1 million people employed in cybersecurity in the U.S., but over 700,000 unfilled positions are currently available. Worldwide, the cyber workforce shortfall is approximately 3.5 million people.

As organizations compete against each other to acquire the scarce talent available, cybersecurity salaries keep escalating, meaning that organizations can’t afford to hire as many cybersecurity workers.

The result is that companies, government agencies, educational institutions and other organizations have weaker security in place than they should, putting all of their employees, customers and constituents at increased risk of data breaches, privacy violations, financial fraud and other adverse consequences.

In this meeting/webinar we will hear from both industry leaders and recruiting professionals on some of the approaches being used to address this issue.

Featured Speakers:

Greg Allender – CISO at Tri-Health

Jason Skidmore – CEO at Vernovis

Holden Ferguson – Cloud/DevOps Recruiter at TEKsystems

David Renaker – Information Security at Northern Kentucky University
