Code(break;)ers: Cultivating More Inclusive Pathways to Technology presented at SecureWorldStLouis 2020

by Ronald Williamson,

Summary : The security industry, much like the American workforce as a whole, is facing a crisis: job growth is outpacing traditional higher education’s output of viable, job-ready candidates, and coding bootcamps and online programs have become costly and exclusive. Employers across markets must revamp the way they recruit, hire and train tech talent in order to move the industry forward. Maria Laura Tarabillo and Ronald Williamson, along with other regional experts, will explore how looking past the barriers of conventional education opens doors for those traditionally marginalized while providing employers reliable ways to find and hire talent, thus creating an economic talent pipeline.
