We are told that the expected cyber skills shortage is estimated to be 1.8 million by 2022 and yet just 12% of the cybersecurity workforce is under the age of 35.
This week I speak with Mark Walmsley, CISO, Freshfields, about finding, nurturing and growing the next generation of cyber talent.
Mark has a wealth of knowledge and experience in sourcing and recruiting talent – particularly in the more unconventional places – so I asked him about where and from what age the search should begin, what it takes to motivate young people, and what the industry should be doing to increase its talent pipeline.
Mark will be speaking at Cyber Security Connect UK.
