Skills Gap: Finding Your Fit in Cyber
On this week’s episode of The Defender’s Advantage Podcast, Mandiant’s Nader Zaveri and Simran Sakraney join Skills Gap host Chris Campbell for a discussion on how the cyber security industry and the companies within it can attract candidates from underrepresented groups and foster diversity.
Nader and Simran share their individual journeys into the industry, their perspectives on how organizations in cyber can encourage more women to enter the security field, and tactics recruiters can take to engage individuals from non-traditional educational and professional backgrounds. They also outline the various types of roles that live within the cyber industry and some of the transferable skills those just starting in the field can lean on.
You can follow Nader at @NaderZaveri and Simran at @SIEMmer_Down.
Learn how Mandiant is working to address the cyber security skills gap.
