Cybersecurity Is Facing A Massive Deficit Of Talent

And it’s about to get much worse.
The industry will be short qualified candidates for an estimated 3.5 million jobs by 2020. In addition, less than 11% of top leadership roles in cybersecurity are filled by women; for people of color, the numbers are lower by an order of magnitude. Women are also opting out of cybersecurity in mid-career and not for the reasons you might think.
Better Together, a collaboration of Karen Worstell, CEO of W Risk Group and founder of MOJO Maker for Women in Tech and Elaine Marino, CEO of Equili and founder of LadyCoders, brings you actionable, executive level strategies that you can use to build and retain your talent in an intentional way that contributes directly to your bottom line AND advances your company capacity for innovation and increase productivity.
This effort culminates in the Better Together talent initiative at the RSA® Conference 2019 in San Francisco starting on March 4, 2019.
Over the next seven months on this site we will be providing original research and interviews from the leadership who have solved this challenge for their organizations. These are the leaders in finding, hiring, nurturing and retaining an engaged, innovative and productive cybersecurity workforce. These insights will let you surf the talent-shortage tsunami instead of being broadsided by it.
Then, we hope you’ll join us at our event-within-an-event at the RSA Conference 2019 where you will be able to engage with the corporate leaders to hear about their tactics, learn about their results and get your questions answered on how they are overcoming the talent challenge.
Start your journey to an engaged, diverse team below.

Intel Hits an Internal Goal for Workforce Diversity

 In January 2015, Intel announced the Diversity in Technology initiative, setting a bold hiring and retention goal to achieve full representation of women and underrepresented minorities in Intel’s U.S. workforce by 2020. The company also committed $300 million to support this goal and accelerate diversity and inclusion – not just at Intel, but across the technology industry. The scope of Intel’s efforts spans the value chain, from spending with diverse suppliers and diversifying its venture portfolio to better serving its markets and communities through innovative programs.

Intel achieved its goal of full representation in its U.S. workforce in 2018, two years ahead of schedule. This achievement was the result of a comprehensive strategy that took into account hiring, retention and progression.

Join the conversation with Jim Gordon and Karen Worstell  where they will cover:

• The critical success factors that helped Intel reach their goals early,

• The benefits and dividends of reaching these diversity goals
