Herjavec Group Cybersecurity Cast: Solving the Cybersecurity Talent Shortage

May 21, 2018

Herjavec Group has launched its very own podcast, The Cybersecurity Cast! Produced by Herjavec Group, The Cybersecurity Cast features discussions on the latest news, trends, vulnerabilities, and exploits in the cybersecurity space. Topics include healthcare, ransomware, identity and access management, and more.

Episode 8: Solving the Cybersecurity Talent Shortage

In the 2017 Cybersecurity Jobs Report, Cybersecurity Ventures predicted that there will be 3.5 million cybersecurity job openings by 2021. 

Our Founder & CEO, Robert Herjavec, has stressed the importance of finding and developing the right talent to fight the onslaught of cybercrime that global businesses continue to face. Robert has stated, "Unfortunately the pipeline of security talent isn’t where it needs to be to help curb the cybercrime epidemic. Until we can rectify the quality of education and training that our new cyber experts receive, we will continue to be outpaced by the Black Hats."

As such, at Herjavec Group, we are dedicated to developing the cybersecurity talent pool across Canada, the United States and United Kingdom. In Canada, we are proud to participate in Ontario’s TalentEdge Internship Program.

Tune into the latest episode of Herjavec Group's Cybersecurity Cast to hear from Jill McClay, Director of HR at Herjavec Group, and Alessandro Carrascoso, an intern with the Professional Services team to learn more about the TalentEdge Internship Program and how it is helping students gain more practical, hands-on experience to be successful in the cybersecurity industry. 

Don't forget to subscribe to The Cybersecurity Cast on iTunes, Stitcher, or SoundCloud and stay tuned for more episodes.
