Our latest episode in The Defender’s Advantage Podcast Skills Gap series features Mandiant EVP and Chief of Business Operations Barbara Massa and Director of HR for Google Cloud Margaret Clarke who joined host Kevin Bordlemay to discuss the initiatives from Mandiant and Google Cloud to address the cyber mobilization crisis we are facing. 

Recent data shows that there are over 700,000 cybersecurity jobs that are unfilled in the US alone, and global estimates show this number is upwards of 3 million. Barbara and Margaret discuss how both Mandiant and Google Cloud are breaking down the barriers to employment in cyber and ensure those interested in employment get the education they need to be successful in the field. They also discuss how organizations should think differently about addressing the talent shortage in cyber security.
