Cybersecurity is an attractive yet complex discipline. There are so many areas within the domain. It is one of those high demand career fields like software development, yet the workforce is underdeveloped. Many have the education, certifications and desire but lack the experience. There are even those determined enough to create their own lab environment, which this path may be easier for some than others. Fortunately, there are ways to improve in areas where you may lack certain skillsets. The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) has created a cybersecurity apprenticeship finder. This tool will provide an opportunity for those looking for mentorship, skill development and hands-on cyber security training.
However, mobilizing a talented and skilled workforce requires all hands on deck. Companies lacking a skilled workforce can make an investment by creating an apprenticeship program. It is a way to groom and cultivate talent that the organization desires to have. These types of programs add holistic value – building up the person, company and economy. It is a complete system that works well. The NICE Cybersecurity Apprenticeship Program Finder provides the tools that are imperative to making the connection between supply and demand in the area of mission critical fields such as cybersecurity.
The well-known saying, seek and you will find will produce results when this principle is put into practice. There are opportunities waiting on those that will seize the moment.
