The (ISC)² Cybersecurity Workforce Study is one of the most highly-anticipated annual research reports each year. Not only has it come to be considered the industry standard for measurement of the global “skills gap” in cybersecurity, but it offers nuanced insights into subjects like job satisfaction rates, salaries, role alignment, the profile of the cybersecurity professional, diversity and how to strengthen teams and improve hiring practices. The 2020 edition of the study was released in early November and also includes data on the cybersecurity community’s response to COVID-19 and the transition to remote work environments. This panel discussion brings together several of the (ISC)² architects behind the research to provide a deeper look beyond the numbers and explore some of the key themes of this year’s findings.
- Learn about the cybersecurity community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the shift to remote work
- Understand the landscape of the current cybersecurity workforce and the shortage that exists today
- Gain insights on how organizations can find, recruit and train new talent to better protect organizations from security threats
