Ninety-Nine Problems But a Job Ain't One
Cybersecurity is a field that's been experiencing rapid growth in the last 20 years. As we all become more virtually connected, online security has become an increasingly crucial priority for organizations of all sizes. In fact, there were a reported 3.5 million unfulfilled roles in cyber security in 2021, up 350% from 2013. With numbers like these, the need for qualified professionals in this field is stronger than ever. In this episode of C Suite, Claudette discusses career paths in cyber security, what companies are looking for in their next search for talent, and how organizations can raise awareness about this ever-evolving career path. Along with her guests Francois Guay, the Founder of the Canadian Cybersecurity Network and Francois Guay & Associates, Deryck, TD's Senior Manager of Information Security, and Aliyah, a student who's pursuing a career in cyber security, Claudette will explore some of the factors contributing to the current war for talent in cyber security and how we can encourage more young people to pursue a career in the field.
