The Myth of the Cybersecurity Workforce Shortage

Her experiences as a software security architecture, security engineer, career advisor, mentor, and speaker have given her a broad spectrum of insight about the so-called cybersecurity “skills shortage.” 

In this episode, Naomi talks with Principal Security Analyst Jen Stone (MCIS, CISSP, CISA, QSA) about why mythology and gatekeeping in cybersecurity are holding the industry back and creating an uncertain future.
