Bridging the Cyber Talent Gap in Government
Recent reports estimate that there will be a staggering 3.5 million unfilled cyber positons in 2021. Cybersecurity engineers who possess the right certifications and education can command top salaries at any company they choose.
The Federal government is the #1 target for cybercriminals, so, in the face of this shortage of cyber talent, how can government organizations succeed in the race for cyber talent?
Join us AFFIRM and the US Cyber Challenge on March 21, 2019 as we take an in-depth look at how government can effectively build a strong defense to mitigate the growing threat from cybercriminals.
U.S. Cyber Challenge:
The mission of U.S. Cyber Challenge (USCC) is to identify and train the nation’s rising talent in cybersecurity and reduce the workforce gap nationwide. Through the administration of competitions and in-person bootcamp programming, USCC validates skill sets of individuals and helps them down the path of a successful career in cybersecurity. USCC also manages CyberCompEx.org (CCX), a social networking site designed to bring together both experienced professionals and novices as they endeavor to increase their knowledge in the field. CCX also provides a career portal where job seekers and recruiters can connect to fill open positions. Visit www.USCyberChallenge.org to learn more about competitions and camp programming.
