8:40 AM How to Build Internal Cyber Capability To Address The Skills Shortage In The Market

Australia is going through a cyber security skills drought, with a low-supply, high-demand environment for cyber skill sets becoming increasingly present. The nature of cyber skills needed by the industry is fast changing. Therefore, the focus of many organisations now is not just obtaining the correct skill sets, but sourcing the right personalities who can be continuously trained in the relevant areas of cyber security to embellish the teams’ capabilities. With this in mind, this session will see Siva discuss how Information Security Professionals are:
  • Identifying the right people to put into the cyber program
  • Keeping the learning syllabus up to date to ensure right skills are developed
  • Retaining existing staff whilst recruiting and up-skilling new talent
