STEM diversity can rescue cybersecurity
from U.S. News & World Report
Cybersecurity workers are in high demand but short supply – and a panel of tech professionals discussed how to get more students interested in that field and to prepare hiring managers to recognize qualified women and minority candidates. National Security Agency Deputy Director Rick Ledgett said during the "New World Cybersecurity Threats: STEM to the Rescue" discussion at the U.S. News STEM Solutions Conference that his agency hires about 1,500 people every year, including 800 from the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.
