Security - Virtual Roundtable

Skills Gaps Put Your Organization at Risk.

14th January 2022 | 10:30am - 12:00pm EST
What plans do cybersecurity and IT leaders have to upskill their teams and recruit talent in order to prevent attacks?

A Meet the Boss virtual roundtable in partnership with Skillsoft

The last 18 months has seen a dramatic increase in the volume of cybersecurity activity. Criminal hackers and cyber-attackers mounted a significant number of attacks during the pandemic – and with a cyberattack occurring approximately every 39 seconds, every business needs a well-trained staff to protect it.

Because one of the best defenses against cyber threats is people. If you don’t have the skills to prevent such attacks, the organization and all those who depend on it remain at risk of a catastrophic breach. A global study from (ISC)2 predicted a terrifying shortage of 1.8 million security workers by 2022, while a recent ESG survey shows that 70% of organizations believe the skills shortage has impacted them and 45% think it has gotten worse over the course of the pandemic.

  • What tactics or strategies must organizations consider in order to train and develop their employees and bring them up to speed with the latest cybersecurity developments?
  • What sort of pressure are security department leaders facing as they onboard new hires?
  • And what’s in store in 2022 as the growing skills shortage continues to expose security gaps?

Join Skillsoft as we explore why organizations must embrace security training and people development methodologies – or suffer increasingly devastating losses. Share your own experiences and discuss best practices with industry peers in this Meet the Boss roundtable.
