Heather Ricciuto - Global Leader, IBM Security’s Academic Outreach Programs
With a projection of 1.8 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs expected by 2020 (Frost & Sullivan, 2017), the cybersecurity skills gap simply cannot be ignored. While hackers are growing in number and sophistication, those fighting back are facing empty seats on the other end of the wire – putting our businesses, data and even critical infrastructure that our society depends on at risk. IBM is taking action, and you can too. Building interest and awareness of cybersecurity careers at a young age is a critical part of this equation – in fact many students don’t even hear about cybersecurity as a career option prior to graduating high school. Learn about the many ways that academia and industry cybersecurity leaders can partner to help build the pipeline of cybersecurity talent that will help protect our digital futures.
