1:15 PM Identifying and building a 21st Century Cybersecurity Talent Pipeline: A Blockchain Imperative for Industry and Academia

Major industry trends fueled by the Internet coupled by healthcare and information technology innovation continues to grow exponentially. Such growth requires that a talent pipeline be differentiated on a myriad of factors. Today’s  talent management systems do not afford an immutable means to discover Cybersecurity candidates and therefore new methods and processes such as Blockchain must be exploited to build and inform for a 21st  workforce. This presentation affords CIOs and thought-leaders visibility into a conceptual model of the Blockchain promise for a distributed peer to peer ecosystem in an academic computing program with industry parallels. Takeaways:
·         Track and build your talent requirements with deeper competencies.
·         Understand how Blockchain may introduce a new workflow that further transparency across your ecosystem.
·         Differentiate your talent search by seeking out other disciplines beyond the computing domains.
·         Build talent management models that create and empower cross-functional teams of underserved populations.
