Workshop: Acquiring and Retaining Cybersecurity Talent: A Proven Model

Workforce development is reliant on the combination of a subject-matter common language framework of projects and tasks. Job descriptions are then derived from this same framework of subject-matter project and tasks definition. A career development plan based on standardized projects and tasks; along with a culture that allows for psychological safety; will allow you to acquire and retain talent. When we combine daily processes of business operations derived from a subject-matter common language, in which all teammates know their role and the roles of others on the team (along with a culture that allows humans to think, feel and perceive without negative consequences) we can truly experience workforce development in any subject-matter profession. Hear how to achieve this success in cybersecurity. Between our technology and our theories, we are showing that organizations can obtain cybersecurity talent in less than 60 days and retain them.
