Educating for a Career in Cybersecurity & Raising Cybersecurity Awareness within your Organization

On the occasion of the 15th annual National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) – a far-reaching awareness campaign and education initiative led by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security – the Pell Center is partnering with Anomali, Tech Collective, and Tevora to offer a half-day conference on the growing market for cybersecurity jobs and the need to build a culture of cybersecurity across organizations.

The event will shine a spotlight on the critical need to build a strong, cyber-secure workforce, address the cybersecurity skills gap, and encourage every workplace to create a culture of cybersecurity from the boardroom to the server room. We’ll highlight how a well-trained and cyber-aware workforce can become the first (and best) line of defense for organizations of all sizes and in all sectors, and help them better protect themselves, their employees, and their customers against the most common cyber threats and mitigate, respond to, and recover from cyber incidents. We will also discuss careers in cybersecurity and ways to motivate young students, veterans, and individuals who are looking for a new career or re-entering the workforce to learn more about the field and seek highly fulfilling, well-paying and rewarding cybersecurity jobs.
