About the event

3.4 million out of 8.1 million cybersecurity roles worldwide are vacant, according to Fortune Magazine. That means that 41% of the cyber jobs out there have no one to perform them. You should consider applying for one.

"But I have no experience. Can I really get a job in cyber?" You can.

Almost anyone who has worked in tech can make the jump to cyber with the right guidance. Our speakers have helped hundreds of people make the switch. Not all were in technical roles like software development or network administration. There is a need for business professionals, lawyers, sales, marketing, and policy in the cyber field as well. Join this free webinar to learn how you can land your first job in cyber.
