The Future of the Cybersecurity Workforce

  • G. Mark Hardy, SANS Principal Instructor
  • Monday, February 10th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

Our career has been growing like crazy with an estimated 3.5 million unfilled cyber security jobs within the next few years. More certs, more quals, more money, right? But where are these people going to come from? It's up to us to help find and train them. You are the vanguard of this cyber cadre of experts, but we'll need to do more than just advertise for talent. We'll look at possible future roles for our security experts, how AI might figure into that (what will be automated and what will we still have to do ourselves), and see how even if you are taking your first SANS cert this week, you can still be part of the senior cadre of security thought leadership going forward.
