ENHANCING ARIZONA AS A LEADER IN THE CYBERSECURITY ECOSYSTEM
Arizona is home to a booming technology industry, which is complemented by the need for cybersecurity professionals. With thousands of vacant positions for cybersecurity professionals at all levels, it is imperative the Greater Phoenix region acquire and develop the talent needed to protect the integrity of the region’s online presence.
WE NEED TALENT TO PROTECT ARIZONA’S DIGITAL FUTURE
The Cybersecurity Workforce Collaborative includes a wide variety of companies that have cybersecurity as a component of their business, but not as their core business function. The group consists of industry professionals, educators and training partners working to address talent shortages for security analysts at the junior, mid and senior levels.
A MULTILAYERED APPROACH
Led by industry, the Greater Phoenix Chamber Foundation developed a three-pronged approach to strengthen the cybersecurity workforce pipeline:
DOES YOUR COMPANY FACE ISSUES WITH ATTRACTING, RETAINING, OR DEVELOPING TALENT?
The Foundation is seeking companies that are hiring cybersecurity positions, education and training providers that offer cybersecurity programs, and workforce development organizations looking to enhance the cybersecurity talent pipeline. If you are interested in joining the collaborative, please contact a workforce development manager.
