Much has been made of the “cybersecurity skills gap” which would suggest it is easy to find a job in cybersecurity.

We believe this is not the case and employers have high expectations even for entry-level jobs. Meanwhile, the pandemic has also affected organisations’ strategic direction, budgets and therefore hiring priorities, making that glut of open positions not quite as voluminous as it arguably once was.

During this session, Owanate Bestman, Director of Bestman Solutions Limited and Deepinder (Deep) Chhabra, Senior Manager for Verizon’s UK Cyber Assurance practice and ISACA London Chapter Chairperson, will discuss what in their experience, candidates can and should do to make themselves more marketable to employers. This panel session will address topics such as experience and skills required for entry level positions, the value of certifications and accreditations, which cyber disciplines and job functions are most in need today, and what is most important to employers when seeking new talent into an organisation.
