Webinar Recording: The Cybersecurity Skills Gap & Barriers to Entry

The Cybersecurity Skills Gap

Are you curious about the effects of recent cyber attacks and events on cyber professionals and the field of cybersecurity at large? Do you wonder what the landscape of cybersecurity will look like in the future? If so, watch a recording of an interactive panel discussion hosted by Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS) and special guests Kathleen Hyde, chair of cybersecurity at Champlain College Online, and Paul Ericksen, executive recruiter for AT&T, for an informational discussion about Champlain's 2021 national survey, The Cybersecurity Skills Gap & Barriers to Entry.

Some of the survey's top findings overwhelmingly revealed that cybersecurity organizations need to address workforce trends around high expectations of past training, lack of minority representation, and toxic work environments in order to close the skills gap the field is currently facing. Learn more about the current and future landscape of the cyber sector from WiCyS and the panelists by watching the webinar recording.
