Upskilling in Cybersecurity: It’s a Team Sport

Todd Pauley, Deputy Chief Information Security Officer, Texas Education Agency

News of data breaches and online frauds has become a matter of regular occurrence, which serves as a constant reminder that leadership needs to involve the entire team in training and developing the necessary cyber skills.  

Upskilling also comes at a time when emerging skill sets are scarce, and the talent market is competitive. To address this crisis, employers will need to both train employees in new areas and provide enabling technologies to boost their current productivity.

How to Prioritize Your Cybersecurity Applications 

Todd Pauley, Deputy Chief Information Security Officer, Texas Education Agency

Prioritizing your cybersecurity applications is vital to making progress towards addressing vulnerabilities. However, most cybersecurity initiatives face more demand than financial resources available.
