The cybersecurity industry is experiencing a dire skills shortage: There's a place for you in the industry, if you know how to find it. Sure, the information security industry does have its share of hacker geniuses who have been reporting Windows vulnerabilities since they were teens. Yet the cybersecurity field is growing fast and full of nontechnical jobs and positions for individuals coming from other sectors of IT or lines of business.

In this session, learn more about the growing need for this wide variety of nontechnical cybersecurity jobs. We’ll discuss the soft skills required in both technical and nontechnical positions; how employers can identify the "out of the box" skills that make for a good nontechnical security staffer; and how job seekers can identify the experience and skills they already possess that make them a good fit for the cybersecurity field.
