We invited five cybersecurity leaders to sit down for a talk.
We wanted to hear directly from the people on the front lines of hiring and educating cybersecurity professionals. How are they working to increase the flow of talent, and what are the skills they think are needed the most.
It was a discussion that ranged from changing the culture to retain talent to the value of recruiting liberal arts majors. And the diversity of their experience extends across the cybersecurity spectrum, with views from Deidre Diamond, CEO of Cyber Security Network; Carla Brodley, dean of the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University; Mike Ridge, embedded systems security architect and group leader for Systems Engineering, Security, and Assured Systems at Draper; Caleb Barlow, vice president at IBM Security; and Paul Martini, CEO of iboss.
Here’s what they had to say.
