Medicine. Aeronautics. Academia. When you’re a cybersecurity professional, the colleague next to you could have started in one of these industries—or just about any other you can imagine. The backgrounds of cybersecurity professionals are more diverse than those of professionals in other industries. And because cybersecurity as an industry is so new, these professionals likely didn’t study security in school either. That includes LinkedIn’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) Geoff Belknap, who graduated college with a business degree. I hosted Geoff on a recent episode of Security Unlocked with Bret Arsenault to talk about strategies for recruiting cybersecurity talent and for solving the cybersecurity skills gap.
