The cyber talent shortage is well documented. Rather than just trying to outbid each other in a competitive job market, wouldn't it be nice if MSSPs were also able to build out their talent pipelines through professional development programs? This session will look at strategies for creating an assembly line of ready-to-go cyber professionals to add to your managed services team, including coordinating with cyber universities and boot camps, and sponsoring apprenticeships, mentorships and internships.
In the last few years, many companies have found that their home offices and their internal on-prem networks are no longer always the central core around which their business operations revolve. Even with more employees returning to the office now, remote and hybrid workforce models are here to stay, thanks to an exponentially increased reliance on cloud-based architecture and services, as well as edge computing practices that allow for the processing of data closer to edge devices. All of which means that critical data and business functions are constantly taking place right at the network's edge -- a perimeter that these days is becoming difficult to define. In this segment we will examine how cybersecurity models must adapt in order to accommodate this recent shift in network dynamics and architecture.
