Information Security is a burgeoning industry. Forbes magazine reports that the cybersecurity industry is projected to grow from $75 billion in 2015 to $170 billion in 2020. The rapid growth has fueled demand for skilled professionals – with an estimated 1-million cyber security openings in 2017 (and a backlog of over 200,000 unfilled positions).
This steep industry growth, coupled with some of the most rewarding career opportunities, has fueled the desire to break into the field. Still, getting in can be a daunting challenge – there are hurdles with educational requirements, gaining experience, the value of certifications, and more. The ambiguity leaves many at a loss of what to do or even where to start.
We’re offering a 1-hour webinar to provide insights on starting an information security career. We’ll hear from a well-known luminary, Jeremiah Grossman, who for the last two decades, has been committed to helping people get into and build careers in the industry. Jeremiah Grossman is one of the world’s leading experts on information security, and is as proud about helping literally hundreds of people break into the industry.
In this session, Jeremiah will discuss many key topics including:
• What education do I need?
• What are effective tactics to build out my network?
• What types of Information Security companies hire at the entry level – and what are the best ways to approach them?
• Do I need to get a certification – and how do I get it?
In addition to the presentation, we’ll set aside a good chunk of time for your questions.
