Your security team may be understaffed, but what are you really doing about? If you’re lamenting the skills shortage, waiting for sixth graders in STEM programs to earn their CISSP certifications, then you’re probably missing out on all the talented people who are available to you right now. In this session learn how to find and hire the best security professionals for all your vacant positions by making changes to your hiring and training practices as well as to your business culture. Learn what to strike from the list of job requirements, where to look that you haven’t already, how to reconstruct your business culture to open the door to a wider range of candidates, and more.
