Webinar: The Cyber Skills Gap – The Challenge – Setting the Scene
Date: 2nd October 2017
Duration: 75 minutes
Speakers include: Adrian Davis, Managing Director, EMEA at (ISC)²; Ian Glover, President at CREST; Quentyn Taylor, Director of Information Security at Canon for Europe; Warwick Ashford, Security Editor at Computer Weekly.
Throughout Security Serious Week this year, during the first week of October, it will be putting on webinars every day to tackle the theme of “Building Awareness and Bridging the Cyber-Skills Gap through Creativity and Diversity”.
The first Security Serious webinar session is The Cyber Skills Gap – The Challenge – Setting the Scene and will be based around the Global Workforce Study which shows the real numbers that expose the challenges facing UK companies in the wake of a global cyber-security shortfall.
With a predicted global shortage of two million cyber security professionals by 2019, and with research showing that the number of cyber security roles advertised in the UK being the third highest globally, the lack of skilled individuals in the industry will naturally leave organisations in the UK vulnerable to cyber attacks. Something drastic needs to be done.
Addressing this major issue, the panel of speakers will aim to answer: How can the UK become a haven for cyber-security and compete against the rest of the world for the best talent? What are the answers to building a viable, strong and competent cyber-security team? Is there enough being done to home-grow our own cyber-security workforce or will we need to talent from overseas and is that even possible with the challenges Brexit will bring?
