Cybersecurity Education: Skills gap, career success and more


Watch Webex On-Demand

Do I need a degree to get a job in cybersecurity? What kinds of skills should I build? How can I take my career to the next level? What do hiring mangers even look for anyway?

When it comes to the cybersecurity industry, the problem is clear: there’s not enough skilled professionals. But how can we tackle this problem head-on? In this webinar, our panel of experts will tackle the topic of education in the cybersecurity industry from many angles.

We’re interested in discovering:
- Why the skill gap seems to keep widening
- What skills students need to learn to succeed
- How we can encourage students and professionals alike to pursue careers in cybersecurity (including at Cisco)
- What hiring managers look for in candidates

Our panelists include:
- Dr. Martha Cyr, Director of Strategic Growth, Project Lead the Way, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (a.k.a. our STEM education expert)
- Michele D. Guel, Distinguished Engineer & IoT Security Strategist, Security & Trust Organization, Cisco Systems (a.k.a our cybersecurity expert)
- Christopher Langer, Talent Acquisition Lead at Talos (a.k.a our hiring manager)
