The results from the eighth Global Information Security Workforce Study (GISWS) were released earlier this year. The cybersecurity workforce gap is estimated to be growing, with the projected shortage reaching 1.8 million professionals by 2022. 

The nation is at risk from this severe shortage of cyber security professionals. One of the main problems is the lack of a robust national cybersecurity workforce pipeline focused on building entry level professionals. The solution may be a hybrid education model that applies vocational, experiential and higher education models. The speaker will discuss this model as applied to current cyber security education public-private partnership programs. 

The webinar should be of interest to anyone involved in talent development, human resources, workforce succession planning, cyber security, public-private partnerships and new educational models.
