Hiring and retaining cybersecurity talent is challenging under the best of circumstances. Given that there are 500,000 open roles in the United States alone, you would think that we as an industry would be more successful at talent strategies. Our SME's will examine cybersecurity hiring in this "new normal", such as: what unique challenges or opportunities has the pandemic brought to our attention? Will 2021 bring more outsourcing of cybersecurity projects, or less? How is the challenge of hiring diverse talent being addressed on the front-lines? What can we do to support entry-level talent and encourage more organizations to train from within? These questions and more will be explored in this webinar with the differing approaches of four cybersecurity industry leaders, sponsored by CyberSN and MindLance.
