About the Episode

The cybersecurity industry is facing a massive talent shortage. In fact, Cybersecurity Ventures has predicted that there will be 3.5 million unfilled positions in cybersecurity by 2025.

As cyber threats continue to rise in number and complexity, security leaders are stretching their employees and resources thin to defend their organizations against these advanced threats and build cyber resilience.

Despite the demand for talent, many of those who are trying to break into the cybersecurity industry are faced with numerous barriers. From financial restrictions to managing unrealistic expectations from their hiring managers, the entry-level security practitioners are struggling to get their foot in the door.

In this episode, Tia Hopkins, Chief Cyber Resilience Officer and Field CTO at eSentire, is joined by Ken Underhill, CEO at Cyber Life, to discuss:

  • How to prepare the next generation of cybersecurity leaders,
  • Which soft skills security practitioners should have to advance in their careers,
  • How security leaders can cultivate more talent, and more.
