We’ve added an optional lunchtime session! Dr. Jeffrey Labrador of IBM Talent Management Solutions will present, “Bridging the Skills Gap: An Examination of Competencies Needed for Cybersecurity Professionals,” beginning at 12:15 pm in Room 20–21. It is estimated that almost two million cyber positions will be unfulfilled by 2022. This is largely due to a skills gap for the necessary technical skills needed for these roles. Dr. Labrador will focus on the identification of other areas outside of technical skills (e.g., competencies and aptitudes) that are appropriate for a number of cyber roles and explore how to identify the behavioral competencies needed for these roles as well as solutions to help assess them.
