BUILDING THE NEXT CISO
Workforces will need to learn faster and be capable of applying new skill sets rapidly. There will be a higher value placed on people skills, business intelligence, independent thinking, innovation, and creativity.
Building the future from the ground up
The skills shortage in the cybersecurity and compliance industry is increasing. By 2021, unfilled cyber positions are estimated to be roughly 3.5 million worldwide. Yet, due to a variety of factors, companies are not opening roles to junior professionals.
Further complicating the issue, programs for security certifications and degrees do not address the skills necessary to make them ready day one.
The security job of the future is being automated away.
The Urgency of Diversity & Inclusion
Minority representation within the cybersecurity field is roughly 26%, and only 14% are women revealing employment tends to be concentrated in non-management positions, fewer occupying leadership roles, despite being highly educated. Managing diversity is one of the defining issues of our time, the NEXT CISO Program is designed to elevate women and BIPOC and set them on their journey to CISO.
The Next CISO Program looks to address these challenges holistically with a program that targets GRC as a entry point ensuring that a strong understanding of controls frameworks for enterprise security and compliance capabilities are baked into the foundation at the onset.
