An estimated 50,000 Americans with autism turn 18 every year. Could these autistic adults be successful in cybersecurity roles? By failing to incorporate those with neurodiversity in our training and recruiting initiatives, are we making a crucial mistake? Join us to hear from those who are actively working in the field to design programs that work for employers and help autistic adults get to work. This webinar will inform participants of research efforts and corporate initiatives to increase the participation of autistic adults in the workforce. Specific attention will be paid to jobs and skills appropriate to the cybersecurity workforce.
