Creating the future cybersecurity workforce
Much of the what happens in today’s world happens in cyberspace. That means strengthening cybersecurity is increasingly critical. Some ASU faculty members and leaders of university organizations and initiatives recently talked about the serious problems we face as the demand for cybersecurity experts continues to outpace the supply of trained professionals in the field. Yan Shoshitaishvili, assistant professor in the School of Computing and Augmented Intelligence, part of the Fulton Schools, and acting director of the Center for Cybersecurity and Trusted Foundations, says more people — and not just aspiring cyberspace professionals — must be educated about how they can contribute to cyberspace safety.
