The Blind Spot – getting over the skills shortage

There are a great deal of “cyber” skilled professionals within the industry, as opposed to what is claimed by the world governments. The term “cyber” itself has lead to the discrimination of valuable professionals who do not feature cyber certifications in their CVs, as recruiters operate on the basis of scanning systems that filter out CVs that do not mention the term du jour creating, therefore creating a blind spot. The creation of sexy new terminology will continue and within a short space of time, the rhetoric will have shifted more to securing the Internet of Things, the interconnectivity issues, the computer network exploitation (CNE) challenges and the ethics of artificial intelligence. “Cyber” will not be the only game in town. Tune in to listen to Andrea on how addressing to this blind spot, might assist the industry with the apparently shortage of skills.
