About this talk

According to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Information Security Analyst's Outlook, cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing career paths around the country. Additionally, the BLS projects that cybersecurity jobs will grow 31 percent through 2029 -- which is seven times faster than job growth among other industries.
