A live special in the field! From social engineering to ransomware and evolving trends like exploitation and IT/OT convergence, cyber threats continue to accelerate in risk scope, scale and sophistication. In this on the ground special, we explore ways to address the challenges right across technology protection and backup, culture, communications, IP, team alignment, skills uplift and partnership perspectives.

We also aim to help change the narrative on what careers in cybersecurity actually look like! and close talent supply and demand gaps, especially from a diversity in security lens. There is a notably growing gap at mid-management level, notably regards women in tech and people of color within cybersecurity - a role level that is so critical in terms of operational agency, increased access to the C suite or the board of directors and career advancement potential as well.

Our discussion is packed full of examples of aligned cyber opportunities including job apprenticeship and internships, coaching and skills development certifications, and the benefits of STEAM learning alongside moving beyond mentorship to sponsorship too!

So to discuss all of the above, I am delighted to be joined by Joye Purser CISSP PhD, Global Lead, Field Cybersecurity at Veritas Technologies
