Workforce Development (CyberSmart)

Cybersecurity Ventures predicts by 2021 there will be 3.5 million cybersecurity jobs that are unfilled – globally! This is a significant challenge that is facing our businesses, economy and our prosperity. The good news is that this presents us with significant opportunities not only for jobs, but for collaboration to create a national skills and workforce development strategy.

A pillar of CyberNB’s strategy recognizes a laser-focused approach to developing a skills and workforce development strategy. Known as CyberSmart, this comprehensive approach to K-12, post-secondary and professional development looks at both the near future and the long-term for results.

Collaboration is a critical component of our entire CyberNB strategy; and as such CyberSmart leverages the expertise of industry, academia and all levels of government in order to build out and execute its mandate.
