Synopsis:

It’s said that good people are hard to find and nowhere is this more true than in cybersecurity. What if you could spot top talent right in your own backyard and help them learn the skills to perform cybersecurity jobs? A new employer trend is to provide upskilling and reskilling training for current employees so they can move into cybersecurity roles in the same company. Employers are using AI and other tools to create internal workforce marketplaces and aligning partnerships with education providers to seamlessly move employees along new career pathways. Others are extending their reskilling efforts to find new talent outside their organization where a skills update is required to qualify for their roles. Join us for a webinar on upskilling and reskilling techniques and hear from an educator and employer about their experiences.
