We talk a lot about closing the skills gap, but it's harder said than done. So we thought we'd tackle the problem in our 2nd episode os Say Easy, Do Hard. Part 1 will discuss the skills needed, the requirements of the position, and the real qualifications for cybersecurity jobs. We will discuss the practical, realistic expectations of working in cybersecurity, not the hyped stereotypical positions.

 

After discussing the requirements for working in cybersecurity, part 2 will tackle where to find the talent. We will explore education, apprenticeships, mentorships, and training. We will also identify areas within the business that have resources with skills that are very complementary with cybersecurity that also make great recruiting areas.

Why 300? 300 is a perfect game in bowling, a milestone few have achieved (unless you're Brendan Alderman who has done it twice before the age of 20). 300 podcast episodes is almost 7 years of recording, a milestone most podcasts haven't achieved. So we thought is was worth celebrating! Join current and former BSW hosts to get a brief history of Business Security Weekly, including: 

  •  Paul's resignation from Tenable in 2016 to expand the Security Weekly podcast
  • Michael and Paul launching Start-up Security Weekly in 2016
  • The switch to Business Security Weekly in 2018
  • Matt's first episode (105) in 2018 as the new CEO of Security Weekly 
  • The premier episode of Security Money (113) in 2019
  • Jason's first episode (101) in 2018
  • The sale of Security Weekly to CyberRisk Alliance in 2020
  • Ben's first episode (231) in 2021
  • The premier episode of Say Easy, Do Hard (289) in 2023

 

You ask, we respond. This Ask Me Anything (AMA) segment allows the audience to ask the BSW hosts anything. From leadership skills to career advice or even why Alderman keeps moving, this segment answers the questions you want to know.
