The recent boom in cybersecurity jobs is no secret — and neither is the lack of candidates to fill those jobs. According to the 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study prepared by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education, both the United States and global economies face a critical shortage of skilled cybersecurity employees.  In the U.S. alone, the Department of Labor anticipates cybersecurity jobs will grow up to 28% by 2026, but according to a 2016 report, “there simply is not a sufficient supply of cybersecurity talent to meet the increasing demand.”

So there are plenty of compelling reasons to retrain for a career in IT security. But for many people, it’s hard to figure out exactly which skills you should learn, or which sector to focus on (Internet-of-Things? Phishing and email security? Network intrusion? Big Data analysis?). Can you be self-taught, or do you need a specific kind of training on your resume to get a foot in the door? Which basic IT skills are required to start studying security? Is a certification really helpful, and if so, what are the best ones to start with?

With those questions in mind, our resident Cybersecurity training expert, Robin Abernathy, will talk about the overall job expectations and responsibilities, certification requirements, and specific career options for people who want to break into this critical and well-compensated field.

This FREE webinar will be presented on June 20, 2018, at 11 EST. To register for the webinar, use this link: KITT Webinar Registration
