De-Mystifying Cyber Security Education: How Can Cyber Security Training be Affordable and Effective at the Same Time?
Speaker: Prem Jadhwani – CEO & President at Intellectual Point
Cybersecurity workforce training and development is going through a major transformation today with the threat of a changing landscape as well as rapidly evolving technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and big data analytics. This presentation will bring real-world best practices from the trenches on how cybersecurity education and training can be both affordable and effective in helping people fill the cybersecurity job openings with the right skills.
Attendees will walk away with a clear understanding of practical cybersecurity training solutions as well as best practices in developing and delivering an effective cybersecurity awareness program from a pragmatic perspective within the commercial and federal organizations. Attendees will learn how an accredited training provider has been leveraging the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA) program to effectively impart cybersecurity education to the unemployed and underemployed and help them transition to a lucrative and stable career in cybersecurity with the help of hands-on professional short courses and IT certifications.
There are five main learning objectives we will cover in this session. We will identify the fastest growing market segments within today’s cybersecurity hiring as well as how the role of a security analyst is rapidly evolving with the advent of advanced persistent threats, zero–day attacks and new indicators of compromise like ransomware. Additionally, we will explore how can you best leverage open source tools in cybersecurity to help provide the best real-world learning environment for effective cybersecurity education. We will also look at ways to effectively bridge the gap between the non-technical IT workforce looking to get into cybersecurity and the type of skills that potential cybersecurity hiring managers are looking for. Further, we will discuss best practices in cybersecurity workforce development, such as blending real-world cybersecurity skills into the classroom with Cyber Security certifications and short courses by building a SOC environment.
