We have a well-known cybersecurity jobs gap, while at the same time, studies have shown that the current workforce is underemployed. Higher education institutions need to actively partner with companies and government organizations to co-create scalable cybersecurity education that can bridge the skills gap, effectively prepare cybersecurity professionals to anticipate and adapt to evolving threats, and clear barriers to entry for a more diverse workforce.

Join a panel with leaders from higher education, government, and industry who will discuss best practices for co-creating scalable, relevant, and affordable cybersecurity training, including:

  • The skills and mindsets we need to be teaching our next generation of professionals
  • Partnership strategies for industry and government
  • Best practices for optimal co-curriculum design
  • How to find and nurture cybersecurity talent

This panel is a part of the SecureWorld Gov-Ed Virtual Conference, and features Nasir Memon, Vice Dean for Academics and Student Affairs of Tandon Online and a Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at NYU Tandon.
