Presented by

About this talk

The Nation has an ever-growing need for cybersecurity professionals who can protect our networks and infrastructure from increasing cyber threats and attacks. According to a study by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education, there will be a shortage of 1.8 million information security workers by 2022. Building a skilled and agile cybersecurity workforce to fill these positions is a national challenge. To address the shortage of skilled workers, it is critical for all communities to work together to coordinate cybersecurity awareness, education, training, and workforce development efforts. Current initiatives across the Federal Government help advance the cybersecurity workforce, particularly through training and professional development. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is leading such efforts through its Cybersecurity Education and Awareness (CE&A) Branch. We will also share information about our Stop. Think. Connect.™ campaign to help promote safe online behavior. Stop. Think. Connect.™ resources provide partnership opportunities to academic institutions, government agencies/departments, as well as non-profit organizations. Join this webinar to learn: 1. How to find CE&A awareness, education, and workforce development resources 2. How to use National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (NCWF) tools 3. How to partner with our Stop. Think. Connect.™ Campaign This webinar is part of ISSA's Security Education and Awareness Special Interest Group Webinar Series.
