Cyber Workforce Discussion – Working to Solve a National Crisis


What: Today’s cybersecurity industry is expected to grow by almost $100 billion dollars by 2020. That means an unprecedented number of jobs to fill, to meet the demand and keep our economic and national security intact. Job postings have increased 74 percent in the past five years, with a global projection of 1.5 million unfilled jobs over the next five years. Many are calling the increasing shortage of workers a “national crisis.”

Join Northrop Grumman and its academic partner, University of Maryland, Baltimore County, as they team with cyber technology startup Leverege to discuss what’s working and how to impact youth perceptions to entering this critical field.
