Our Perspective on the Cyber Challenge Talent Challenge

Maintaining and improving the skillset of your cybersecurity workforce – especially as threats evolve at a rapid pace – takes more than an employee brand campaign, current skills inventory, or a one-time training. It requires an integrated and evidence-based approach to Cyber Talent Management.

Successful cyber professionals share similar non-technical traits, including passion for technology and a problem-solving mindset. Understanding what motivates and makes a cybersecurity professional tick is important to attracting—and keeping—the right team.

Cybersecurity professionals want to grow. Keeping a team engaged means letting them learn and grow through experiential work assignments and mentoring opportunities even when you feel under resourced.
