Enterprises today are seeing a more prominent crisis in finding and retaining IT and cybersecurity talent. The expanding threat landscape, coupled with the pandemic has only exasperated the issue, growing the skills gap.  This session will analyse the consequences if organisations don’t start to get a grip on the problem.

Our panel session, during CIO & CISO VISIONS, will dive into how a leader can identify which employees need upskilling or reskilling. Not only that, we’ll delve into the methods and resources needed to train staff and how to attract and retain the best talent.
