Much has been written regarding the cybersecurity workforce pipeline and its inadequacy to respond to marketplace demands. NCyTE—The National Cybersecurity Training & Education Center funded through the National Science Foundation–will guide a discussion around the role that outdated, invalid or inaccurate hiring requirements may play in bypassing candidates for cybersecurity jobs who would be otherwise qualified. A focus group panel will address how educators, hiring managers, and others work with HR professionals on hiring procedures related to entry level and mid-level cybersecurity/IT jobs. Part of the workshop will be a demonstration of a virtual reality (VR) Cyber Facility where participants interact with cybersecurity professionals to discuss their work roles.
