Session on Building a workforce for tomorrow: Career in Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity experts have become the most sought-after professional in the post COVID world as industries across the world grapple with surging data breaches, hacking and cyber-attacks. Cybercriminals are exploring new and advanced ways to infiltrate information systems, disrupt service, and steal sensitive information. With remote work becoming new normal, the hackers are having a field day. To that end, cybersecurity experts play a critical role in keeping companies’ data safe.
Currently, there are over 5,000 positions in the cybersecurity domain. According to a report, the cybersecurity workforce needs to grow 62% to meet the rising demand. The demand for security professionals is skyrocketing and shows no signs of stopping. From security architect to security consultant to Chief Information Security Officer, the potential for professionals to grow in this space are immense. Many companies are looking to make cybersecurity training and hiring a priority. Cybersecurity covers the whole spectrum of technical and non-technical skills. While cybersecurity as a career option is trending, there is a dearth of professionals with desired skills.
Given the opportunities in the field, is it the right time to start a career in cybersecurity?
