This Job Feels Just Right: Finding Your Niche in Cybersecurity

Wednesday, May 04 | 11:45AM–12:45PM ET | Harborside Ballroom E, 4th Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session

Daily we hear about the need for cybersecurity talent, and yet we also hear stories about people at all levels who are not always able to find their fit. They include graduates trying to get their foot in the cyber door; to mid-level professionals with technical and non-technical skills looking to cybersecurity for a new career path; and seasoned leaders looking for a change. Is the issue the applicants, or is it the unchanged system they are trying to enter? In this session, we will address how applicants and hiring managers can move beyond the typical hiring process, start building up our cybersecurity resources, and enhance the makeup of our most valuable assets—our teams.
