11:15 AM Creative Solutions for the Skills Shortage- Developing Talent and Culture

The number of security openings exceeds the number of people available to fill them.  A security culture needs to be embraced prior to technical security work.  Within the security industry there is a problem of empathy where the victims of the cyber security breaches are punished.  The whole world, which utilizes security systems, needs to be engaged to be effective. The true diversity of people who use the systems must be protected and represented.  This means the security teams needs to include the variety of cultures and thinking protected.  Clearly cyber criminals do not discriminate based on gender and strategies must be implemented to create and inform a growing, strategic workforce and pipeline.  In this session, explore efforts for achieving a truly diverse industry and ways to recruit and retain diverse talent including women and minorities.
In this session:
•Planning long term with staff development and culture awareness
•Widening talent searches outside of IT
•Creating and empowering cross-functional teams
