One of the reasons we’ve labelled this as a “recommended cyber event” is because of the fact that it is helping folk with employment knowledge. All great stuff and excellent content and we wish the organizers the best of luck with CyberNorth.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, March 24th 2021, or created by us.
A lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals is often given as a reason for holding businesses back from growth. Throughout February and March, with the help of the cybersecurity, learning, and public sectors, CyberNorth with DCMS has held a series of round table events to identify issues that can support employment in the North East’s cybersecurity sector. The aim of these sessions was to:
- Gain a better understanding of the issues that are affecting employment in the North East’s cybersecurity industry
- Test this understanding against the key segments within the cybersecurity market, schools, universities, businesses, local and national government
- Promote national initiatives to address skills shortages, such as CyberFirst
This information will allow CyberNorth to target its efforts better on improving employability in the regions’ cybersecurity sector. It will also act as a template for other clusters to address their own region’s issues.
In this final session of the series, join us to learn what we have found and what we can do to make the most of these opportunities. If you are an employer, working in cybersecurity, work in the learning sector, or are interested in a career in this exciting and growing area, then this session is for you.
