Local students eyed as solution to global cybersecurity workforce gap | Education Guide | Colorado Springs | Colorado Springs Independent
One of the world’s greatest government, military, financial and social challenges has been made even worse by a workforce shortage of global proportions. (ISC)2, an international cybersecurity association, found there are close to 3 million cybersecurity job openings worldwide. In the U.S., 350,000 cybersecurity jobs are unfilled. The Springs-based National Cybersecurity Center works with students to fill that gap with a one-of-a-kind program that’s unique to the United States. Launched in 2018, the National Cybersecurity Center Student Alliance stands as the only Career and Technical Student Organization in the country solely dedicated to cybersecurity.
