Innovation is happening every day, specifically in cybersecurity – cloud computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and quantum are a few examples. It’s no secret that skillsets from 10 years ago need to evolve to match the newer technologies and infrastructure environments for today. Therefore, hiring managers need to evolve their mindset and look at new types of talent that may not fit the typical “unicorn” player or even check all the boxes on the job description. Given many of us are always evolving to keep up with the latest trends, services, technologies – an avenue for talent acquisition that includes on the job training for start-skilling, cross-skilling, up-skilling and re-skilling would be ideal, wouldn’t it?
Join us in this session to understand the apprenticeship model realities and how it can be adopted into our cybersecurity, cloud and IT workforce today to support the following:
- More highly skilled employees
- Strategy for closing current employees’ skills gaps
- Community support to help with employee training
- Diversity and inclusion – increase performance and values
You'll also hear from the Chief Information Security Officer at Centene Corporation, a large publicly traded multi-national healthcare company, will discuss how he and his team have benefitted from an apprenticeship program.
