In the last two episodes, we talked about the importance of upskilling in employee engagement and retention and building stronger security teams by training for career progression, not just immediate tasks. Today, the guests of those two episodes, Jessica Amato of Raytheon Technologies, Romy Ricafort of Comcast Business, Katie Boswell of KPMG Cyber and Jason Jury of Booz Allen Hamilton answer some questions related to those discussions. They explore finding and recruiting new and novice cyber talent, methods of making diversity a robust part of your hiring strategy, best practices for the always scary process of moving between different career tracks, and a lot more.
For twelve days in November, Cyber Work will be releasing a new episode every single day. In these dozen episodes, we’ll discuss career strategies, hiring best practices, team development, security awareness essentials, the importance of storytelling in cybersecurity, and answer some questions from real cybersecurity professionals and newcomers.
