Next Gen Cyber is a cybersecurity workforce development company founded for one purpose — Bridging the cyber talent gap by building the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. We help aspiring and current information security professionals gain access to career development coaching, discounted training and certifications, conferences and networking events, educational webinars, and job opportunities.
Today, thousands of cybersecurity jobs are going unfilled. The projected workforce shortage is expected to reach 1.8 million professionals by 2022.The challenge to filling these jobs is that most employers require not only academic degrees, technical skills, and professional certifications but also years of experience. There is also a substantial talent pool that possesses some of the required skills and education but lack the real world experience demanded by potential employers. Short of time travel, the only way to fill this gap is through career development and mentorship, which will better position our members to fill jobs in both the government and commercial sectors.
