It takes a village... is a discussion about the challenges we face building security teams and strategies to alleviate our hiring bottlenecks. In a field riddled with unconscious bias, the community must work together to explore alternative recruiting strategies, expand hunting grounds for talent, and actively seek out folks with varied backgrounds and experiences who bring fresh perspectives to our projects and teams. Kimber will discuss mentorship programs and how to retain talent through professional development. She'll also provide some tips for jobseekers who've had a non-traditional path to security and ways to improve visibility and marketability to recruiters and potential employers. Whether searching for talent or seeking new opportunities, the landscape is rapidly changing and the security industry needs new approaches to recruiting and hiring if we're going to Secure All The Things™.
