CACI’s Michael Mourelatos will speak on the topic of Leveraging Innovative Public/Private Partnerships to Drive Cyber Workforce Development
Public/private collaboration is essential to fill the cyber talent pipeline and improve the safety of information networks that drive national security and economic stability. Collaboration among federal, state, local, and private stakeholders – including industry, non-profits, and academia – is the foundation for new cyber security education, training, and workforce development initiatives. These innovative partnerships are actively addressing the need for skilled and motivated workers to fill the pervasive cyber security talent shortage. According to a recent 2018 ISACA survey, 59% of enterprises report unfilled security positions, and 54% stated it takes over three months or longer on average to fill security positions.
