We have all heard the term "Cybersecurity talent shortage." With information security rising as one of the quickest growing industries, there are more jobs than there are qualified candidates. This creates a difficult HR environment and tends to lead to a high level of turnover. How can businesses recruit, but just as importantly, retain, key cybersecurity personnel?
In this two hour ISSA International web event, industry professionals will share their experiences and provide real world feedback regarding one of the most challenging issues facing the information security field. Additionally, we will explore the results of a comprehensive employment study performed by ISSA and ESG earlier this year. What does the data collected in the survey tell us about the current and future security job markets, and how can you apply these findings to your business operations?
