We are up against breaches, cyberattacks and a shortage of cybersecurity professionals, but what are the real challenges we are facing preventing us from developing a robust workforce?
Please join our June Women in Security Networking Event, as we’ll be joined by Katherine Thompson, Head of Ecosystems at Cyber Future Foundation as she shares her discoveries from Cyber Talent Week 2022 impacting the cybersecurity workforce like:
- Access - Strong concerns voiced around the varying aspects of access. Whether it was a socio-economic or geographic.
- DE&I - The consensus amongst participants is that DE&I has been acknowledged in our industry but still faces a great deal of head wind.
- Finding your first job in our industry - It is much tougher than people think. Whether coming out of school or transitioning into the industry, the barriers to entry are real and are turning people away from pursuing a career in cyber security.
Following Katherine's session, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, meet and greet fellow attendees, share your own stories and ideas about career development, building skills and making their own cybersecurity career dynamic, skillful and inclusive.
