Economies and societies are becoming increasingly digitalized and hyperconnected. Millions of people around the world rely on capable information and cyber security professionals to protect their privacy, freedom and safety.
But there is a severe shortage of these professionals and organizations are challenged to staff their cyber teams. There is a growing need for people (good hackers) that understand cyber threats and know how to use the latest tools to respond to live attacks in real world situations (bad hackers). This includes professionals capable of writing effective organization-wide policies to those that provide security awareness trainings, conduct forensics, research or market new cyber defense products and services.
Contributing to safer, shared digital environments and societies through the people of cyber security.
