Preventing the Next SolarWinds: The Necessity for Cyber Security Skills & Development

The adversaries are becoming ever-more sophisticated — and as the recent Solarwinds attack illustrates, the stakes for companies and government agencies have never been greater. A major cyber security breach can be crippling to an organization. Your best defense is not a firewall, but rather a capable and trained cybersecurity workforce. In this webinar, Richard Spires, a past CIO of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and a Learning Tree instructor, will present some leading innovations in cyber security training and skills development. His focus is on practical ways for organizations of all types to develop a robust cyber security department that can hold its own against the leading cyber security adversaries.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Explore and understand the continually evolving and growing cyber security threat
  • Via the NICE Workforce Framework, appreciate the breadth of roles needed in an organization’s cyber security department
  • Get introduced to today’s leading approaches to cybersecurity learning to see what really works
  • Discover today’s trends in cyber security learning and development, like the new CMMC certification, SecDevOps, “Zero Trust,” and more
