Arizona’s reputation for being ‘business-friendly’ has succeeded in keeping and attracting companies in exciting industries, from technology and security to health care and manufacturing.
As Cybersecurity Awareness Month comes to an end here in October, we wanted to share some helpful cybersecurity resources for aspiring cybersecurity professionals who want to network, learn more about the field and stay up-to-date on the latest cybersecurity trends. You can use resources like these when you’re on the cybersecurity job hunt to grow your knowledge and skills.
As cyberattacks increase in scale and severity, so too does the global demand for cybersecurity professionals – in all aspects of the field and across all sectors. The supply seemingly cannot keep up, resulting in an acute talent shortage. But in this talent shortage, there is an even bigger and more troubling gap: the lack of diversity in cybersecurity.
As part of an $8 million ASU-led U.S. Department of Labor grant, Arizona Technology Council joins a collaborative of community partners to establish the Arizona Workforce Training Accelerator Partnership for Next Generation Jobs (AZNext). The partnership will enhance regional competitiveness, address workforce shortages and train workers for high-demand jobs in advanced manufacturing, cybersecurity and IT.
