Women in Security Mentors would like to share this excellent Webinar opportunity for our community, courtesy of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE)*. Please feel free to share with your students and community.

Synopsis:

Despite the incredible shortage of talent in cybersecurity, it can be enormously challenging for career entrants to find their first role. What can candidates do to prepare where their lack of experience holds them back? What roles are considered entry-level from the employer perspective? What are pathways for those who wish to career-switch? This webinar will explore the unique challenges and opportunities from the perspective of educators, employers, and jobseekers.

*The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), led by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the U.S. Department of Commerce, is a partnership between government, academia, and the private sector focused on cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development. The mission of NICE is to energize and promote a robust network and an ecosystem of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development. NICE fulfills this mission by coordinating with government, academic, and industry partners to build on existing successful programs, facilitate change and innovation, and bring leadership and vision to increase the number of skilled cybersecurity professionals helping to keep our Nation secure.
