Shree Parthasarathy, CIO & National Leader of Cyber Risk Services for Deloitte India, and Sharon Rosenman, VP Marketing for Cyberbit presented a webinar on the future of Cybersecurity training on March 11, 2019.
Parthasarathy set the tone for the webinar with the statistic: there will be 3.5 million global unfulfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021. In India, the demand for cybersecurity professionals tripled in the past 12 months, with 15,000-30,000 open cybersecurity jobs.
One of the key issues in hiring is applicants lack hands on experience. Parthasarathy then discussed the current context of cyber training & awareness in Enterprises. Parthasarathy said, “Skilling, not trainings, is essential to overcome the skills gap.”
Parthasarathy detailed the Deloitte Cyber Academy’s simulation-based skilling approach, and Rosenman discussed the Cyber Range Platform. These discussions included cyber range examples. “And what we believe is important,” said Parthasarathy, “whether we operate in government, military, academia, industry, is to really focus on the skilling. It’s going to be extremely important for all of these particular stakeholders to continue to basically move up in their skilling maturity as we take this forward.”
Also covered in the webinar was the benefits of Cyber Range Training & Education. Before Parthasarathy and Rosenman opened the discussion up for a Q&A session to end the webinar.
