This is a fantastic event in the sense that it will be addressing the Cybersecurity Employment sector. With the destructive nature of COVID-19 which has laid waste to employment.

The growth of cybersecurity jobs continues to be a tremendous opportunity across both the public and private sectors. The current talent pool of cybersecurity workers is not sufficient to fill the available jobs, so students must be informed and encouraged to pursue this exciting career through cybersecurity education for all.
The 2020 NICE K12 Cybersecurity Education Conference, taking place on December 7-8, 2020 at the Marriott St. Louis Grand in St. Louis, Missouri, will feature timely and thought-provoking presentations that highlight effective collaborations, bold experiments and innovations, and other potentially game-changing methods in support of growing the cybersecurity workforce. Attendees will include training and educational leaders from academia, business, and government for two days of focused hands-on workshops and discussions in support of the NICE strategic goals: accelerate learning and skills development, nurture a diverse learning community, and guide career development and workforce planning.
This year’s conference, hosted by iKeepSafe, will host over 50 presentations, 35 professional exhibitors, and a projected 450+ attendees.
