Educating the next generation of cyber security professional

Join us on the 29th March at 16:00 with Benoit Heynderickx, Ivo Goncalves, Kevin Streater and Katie Watson to discuss Educating the next generation of cyber security professionals.

What does success look like for you and for your teams? How do you develop capability that really supports your needs in a cost effective and speedy manner? How do you retain expertise within the organisation and ensure that your teams feel valued? Whether you are developing raw talent or seasoned campaigners, CIISec’s adaptable, mature, and proven frameworks and development programmes will be able to take you or your teams to the next level and beyond. Kevin Streater, Board Director at CIISec, will guide you through the process and answer any burning questions.

Kevin will be joined by Benoit Heynderickx and Ivo Goncalves. The Information Security Forum (ISF) has been a supporting member of the CIISec Associate Development Programme (ADP) for several years. Recognising the value of the programme, both our experienced information security professionals and those new to the subject are taking the courses. In addition, ISF analysts are delivering lectures sharing the wealth of experience and security expertise we have at the ISF.

In this session you will learn how to:

- Motivate your students to learn and develop their cyber security skills and knowledge through a programme like the ADP
- Understand some of the common challenges experienced by students on the programme and how to overcome them
- Explain the benefits offered by the ADP programme to aspiring students and mentors
- How to complement the learning with a wide range of ISF research, tools and expertise.
