NECESSITIES FOR CHILDREN LAUNCHES A NEW PROGRAM IN SUMMER 2021
Cyber Tech for Teens was a tremendous success, with 50+ participants in our initial class! “Cybersecurity Ventures’ prediction is that there will be 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs globally by 2021, up from one million positions in 2014… Over the eight-year period tracked, the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs is expected to grow by well over 350 percent, from one million positions in 2013 to 3.5 million in 2021. ISC(2), an international, nonprofit membership association for information security leaders, produced research in 2018 estimating the cyber worker shortage at nearly 3 million by 2022.”
This is an important sector to not only teach youth Cyber Safety, but also, the tremendous job opportunities! Youth were educated, engaged and inspired by the lessons and Special Guest Speakers.
