Growing the Cyber Workforce

Growing the cyber workforce is a top tier priority for Federal agencies. Recruiting and retaining IT and cyber talent in public service is challenging – but significant investments are in motion to flip that narrative.

Join us for a discussion that will focus on tactics already in motion to enhance the Federal cybersecurity workforce and fill the shortfall in skilled cyber experts across the government. We’ll look at new talent management systems being implemented, the effort to bring new hiring authorities online to simplify application processes, and what options exist for pay flexibility, and other incentives.
