CC-05 - Building the Cybersecurity Workforce for Tomorrow

Tuesday, September 26
2:45 PM - 3:15 PM

The demand for cybersecurity professionals is at an all-time high. How can the nation address this exponentially growing need for a knowledgeable and skilled cybersecurity workforce? To support a consistent nationwide understanding of cybersecurity work, DHS co-developed the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework—a blueprint to describe, categorize and organize cybersecurity work into specialty areas, tasks, knowledge, skills and abilities. Additionally, DHS offers several resources to foster opportunities for continual professional development, including free online cybersecurity training to government employees and veterans (FedVTE).

Come join this session to learn how to apply this workforce framework, along with best-practices and free online resources, to strengthen your cybersecurity workforce and develop adaptable strategies in the face of ever-changing cyberattacks.
