Tough truth: Cybersecurity professionals take twice as long to hire, and everybody’s after them. These two videos give candid insights into what it takes to recruit needed talent for cybersecurity needs. (ICYMI, cyber is a problem for every business now, not just techies.)
To get your bearings on solving the problem, check out these two insight-packed selections from the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness:
The first 20-minute video showcases resources that can help you address a cybersecurity talent gap. It also explains why cyber training is important for more than just the technical people on your team – including the CEO.

The second video gives a clear look at the costs and opportunities associated with taking advantage of apprenticeships and internships, as well as the public policies and initiatives that are supporting business owners and growing the cyber workforce.
In short, it ain’t easy, but there’s help.
