At a recent cybersecurity meeting at the White House, top finance and tech CEOs discussed the need to invest in cybersecurity talent development to protect and defend against cyber threats.
Further, a diverse talent pool is fast becoming a business imperative. We need a wide variety of different experiences, skillsets, and ways of thinking in order to stay ahead of nimble and innovative cyber criminals as the financial system evolves.
As an FS-ISAC scholar, I had an unrivalled opportunity to learn from an outstanding network of cybersecurity professionals in real time. My conversations with my mentor helped me gain a new perspective and redefine my future career goals, as well as a path and plan of action. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.
