Watch live: Workforce 2.0, cultivating cybersecurity professionals

Around the world, an estimated 1 million cybersecurity jobs are currently unfilled. Join a panel discussion on how to cultivate cybersecurity talent on Tuesday, April 12.

Please join us on Tuesday, Apr. 12 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. for a panel discussion with a group of prominent cybersecurity professionals.

In Washington, the Obama administration wants $62 million to raise a new federal digital security workforce. And firms globally are luring talent with six-figure salaries to fill millions of openings.

But it'll take much more than money to prime the pipeline for cyber jobs. It'll take creativity, hard work, and a hacker's ingenuity to attract the best talent and sharpest young minds to confront tomorrow's security challenges.

Please join Passcode along with White House Chief Information Officer Tony Scott and other leading figures in digital security to explore the newest ideas and approaches to close the cybersecurity skills gap.

At the event, Passcode will also launch its new Security Culture section that will unpack and illustrate the far-reaching and increasingly important role that digital security plays in daily life.
