Symantec Gov Symposium

Cyber Workforce Fireside Chat: Workforce for an Automated Security World

Independence Ballroom


Let’s face it – addressing today’s cyber security workforce shortage is a challenge for public sector organizations. They need to find – and retain – the right people to do the job, while building a modern, diverse IT workforce that improves the nation’s cyber security posture. This sometimes requires determining how to hire those who have the skills, but don’t meet the minimum requirements. Attend this executive luncheon fireside chat as we explore today’s cyber workforce challenges and discuss:

  • What government – and individual agencies – can do to bring attractive talent to the table
  • How we can sift through the morass of process by bringing private sector agility to the hiring, firing, and onboarding of qualified candidates
  • Collaboration with veterans, online, and academic training organizations
  • Additional incentives and challenges to workforce retention
