Panel Details

Leadership Panel

Cybersecurity is a national priority and critical to the resiliency of government institutions and businesses. Starting to build a cybersecurity workforce requires several considerations including a need-based approach. The Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity commonly referred to as the NICE Framework, is a nationally focused resource to help employers develop their cybersecurity workforce, which establishes a common lexicon that describes cybersecurity work and workers regardless of where or for whom the work is performed. However, even with this robust framework, practical consideration from an academic and government perspective needs to be fleshed out. This panel seeks to have a conversation with leaders in the area of cybersecurity capacity building to get their views on what other leaders should consider as we tackle the issue of having a sustained cybersecurity workforce in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Panel 1: Building Bridges in the Cyber Labor Market

The intention of this panel is to highlight best practices in bringing government, academia, and industry together to respond to the cybersecurity workforce gap in the Western Hemisphere.

Panel 2: Discovering Pathways into the Cybersecurity Workforce

This panel will examine different pathways that have been proven successful to enter the cybersecurity workforce across the region. This includes examining work-based learning approaches like apprenticeships, internships, and other direct to employment experiences, as well the use of practical exercises like cybersecurity competitions as a catalyst.

Panel 3: Creating More Entry Pathways for Early Career Talent

In the cybersecurity workforce, there is a demand to promote the establishment of more entry-level positions and opportunities that provide avenues for growth and advancement. During this panel, stakeholders will share insights on entering the cybersecurity workforce and best practices to connect local employers with entry-level talent.

Detalles de panel

Panel de Líderes

Ciberseguridad es una prioridad nacional y es fundamental para la resistencia de las instituciones gubernamentales y las empresas. Comenzar a crear una fuerza de trabajo de ciberseguridad requiere varias consideraciones, incluyendo un enfoque basado en las necesidades. El Marco de la Fuerza de Trabajo para la Ciberseguridad, comúnmente conocido como el Marco NICE, es un recurso centrado a nivel nacional para ayudar a los empleadores a desarrollar su fuerza de trabajo de ciberseguridad, que establece un léxico común que describe el trabajo y los trabajadores de ciberseguridad independientemente de dónde o para quién se realice el trabajo. Sin embargo, incluso con este sólido marco, es necesario profundizar en las consideraciones prácticas desde una perspectiva académica y gubernamental. Este panel busca tener una conversación con líderes en el área de la construcción de capacidades de ciberseguridad para obtener sus puntos de vista sobre lo que otros líderes deberían considerar al abordar el tema de tener una fuerza laboral de ciberseguridad sostenida en América Latina y el Caribe.

Panel 1: Construir Puentes en el Cibermercado Laboral

La intención de este panel es destacar las mejores prácticas para reunir al gobierno, la academia y la industria para responder a la brecha de la fuerza laboral de ciberseguridad en el Hemisferio Occidental.

Panel 2: Descubrir las Vías de Acceso a la Fuerza Laboral en Ciberseguridad

Este panel examinará las diferentes vías que han demostrado tener éxito para entrar en el personal de ciberseguridad en toda la región. Esto incluye examinar enfoques de aprendizaje basados en el trabajo como aprendizajes, pasantías y otras experiencias directas al empleo, así como el uso de ejercicios prácticos como competiciones de ciberseguridad como catalizador.

Panel 3: Creación de Más Vías de Acceso para los Talentos que Inician su Carrera

En la fuerza laboral en ciberseguridad existe la demanda de promover el establecimiento de más puestos y oportunidades de nivel básico que proporcionen vías para el crecimiento y el avance.

Contudo, mesmo com esta estrutura robusta, a consideração prática de uma perspectiva académica e governamental precisa de ser aprofundada. Este painel procura ter uma conversa com líderes na área da capacitação em cibersegurança para obter as suas opiniões sobre o que outros líderes devem considerar ao abordarmos a questão de ter uma força de trabalho de cibersegurança sustentada na América Latina e nas Caraíbas.

Painel 1: Construir Pontes no Mercado de Trabalho Cibernético

A intenção deste painel é destacar as melhores práticas na reunião do governo, do meio académico e da indústria para responder ao fosso da força de trabalho da cibersegurança no Hemisfério Ocidental.

Painel 2: Descobrindo Caminhos para a Força de Trabalho de Segurança Cibernética

Este painel examinará diferentes percursos que se tenham revelado bem sucedidos para entrar na força de trabalho da ciber-segurança em toda a região. Isto inclui o exame de abordagens de aprendizagem baseadas no trabalho, como estágios, estágios, e outras experiências directas ao emprego, bem como a utilização de exercícios práticos como concursos de cibersegurança como catalisador.

Painel 3: Criação de Mais Vias de Entrada para os Talentos da Primeira Carreira

Na força de trabalho da ciber-segurança há uma procura para promover o estabelecimento de mais posições e oportunidades de nível inicial que proporcionem vias para o crescimento e o avanço. Durante este painel, as partes interessadas partilharão ideias sobre a entrada na força de trabalho de cibersegurança e as melhores práticas para ligar os empregadores locais aos talentos de nível básico.
