Survey: Experience Preferred Over Education When Hiring
survey of 350 IT security professionals gauged their attitudes
toward the skills shortage in cybersecurity. Some 93 percent agreed
that experience is more important than qualifications. A further 73
percent claimed that it didn't matter whether IT staff were college
graduates when it came to getting the job done.
Qualifications are considered degrees and
rub -- and what they didn’t ask -- is how do you assess the
experience and capability of professionals to solve the sorts of
problems you have?
Straight Talk on hiring… check it
results on whether communication or technical skill was more
important; hint - it’s communication. You can be the smartest one
in the room, but if no one understands you…
it’s also awkward to suggest that you can’t have both good
technical and good communication skills. You can.

Take a step outside the echo chamber - gain some perspective and context.
Welcome to Cybersecurity: An immature industry where we mandate impossible-to-remember complex passwords that change every 30 days - and call that security. It's an industry where everyone is an expert, but no one's actually solved anything... weird right?
This show is focused on the many aspects of cybersecurity - from professional to leadership, technical to abstract. We look to entertain you while filling your brain with expertise and knowledge from all corners of our industry and beyond. You can expect security experts, policy professionals, and people from outside our own "security bubble" because frankly, our echo chamber needs some perspective.
