The increased need for cybersecurity professionals continues to grow worldwide and it is predicted that the global workforce will have more than 1.8M unfilled cybersecurity positions by 2022. This is alarming when you consider:
- $6 trillion: The estimated cost of cybercrime by the year 2021
- 200 billion: The estimated number of IoT devices by the year 2020
- 360,000: The number of malware samples propagated each day
What are organizations doing to address this shortage of cybersecurity professionals and the increased number of cyber threats? Join Mac McMillan, CEO of CynergisTek, on June 18th from 12:00-1:00 pm CDT to hear about some of the different programs that are being developed and were recently established to address the future of filling cybersecurity positions. He, along with Marcie Stout, Virtual CISO of CynergisTek, will also look at what some hospitals are doing right now to address this challenge and provide guidance on how to find resources to close the gap.
