Want to grow your career? Should you load up your resume with certs? Get a(nother) degree? Become a Twitter star? Take SANS courses?
Understanding the nature and scope of the entire information security profession and the full spectrum of options is central to making sound career choices.

This session will be conducted by (ISC)2’s Director of Cybersecurity Advocacy. It will draw from his research with the annual (ISC)2 Workforce Survey, AFCEA, and his national-level initiatives as the co-chair of the government’s Certification and Training Subcommittee of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE). The session will look beyond the raw numbers and statistics to uncover the hidden truths of what these statistics and research can mean for your career. Understand what aspects of a traditional educational track can enhance your prospects and which elements may just waste your time. Learn the possible shortcuts and non-traditional approaches to growing your earning power. Open up your horizons by being better able to identify and predict key trends in the cybersecurity job market. This session is designed to provide you insights you can use right away to build a more prosperous and rewarding future.
