“Negative Unemployment in Cybersecurity” and “500,000 Unfilled Security Jobs” are headlines that have reached Internet meme status.

Learning Objectives:
1: Learn how to evaluate your real need for additional staff and skills.
2: Learn ways to determine if existing IT staff could become security analysts.
3: Hear lessons learned from government and academia efforts in growing skills pool.
