Addressing the Cyber Security Workforce Gap – Ways to Grow and Promote Cyber Security as a Vocation
In this presentation, we will look at the size and extent of

exist, where the opportunities for careers lie and how industry, academia,
government and associations such as AISA are instrumental in closing the cyber
security workforce and skills gap.
