Cybersecurity awareness is now at an all-time high, thanks in part to widely publicised breaches that we read about on an almost monthly basis. However, many businesses, small and large, still underestimate the potential for a cyber-attack against their organisation. <br><br>Our world today is built upon technology, but technology is only one component in the equation for cyber-resilience: people and their potential are the critical cornerstone in building effective cyber-resilience for any organisation. But how do we develop the people aspect of Cyber Security and ensure we have the right talent?<br><br>According to ACS Australia’s Digital Pulse 2018, AustCyber has worked with industry partners and TAFEs around Australia to develop national cyber security qualifications (at Certificate IV and Advanced Diploma levels) which provide technical and practical training in cyber skills. These qualifications will help develop the 11,000 additional technical cyber security workers that AustCyber estimates Australia will require over the next decade. Thereby Cyber Security continues to be one of the fastest-growing fields.<br><br>Australia ranks third of the 16 countries on its cyber-related capabilities and framework in the 2017 Global Cybersecurity Index (ITU, 2017), a ranking that has remained relatively unchanged over the past few years.<br> <br>Join the panel to discuss how to leverage your already established IT skills and experience to help with your transition into a successful career in Cyber Security.
