Please join us for Bridging the Cybersecurity and Privacy Workforce Skills Gap, the second in a series of workshops hosted by the Georgia Cybersecurity and Privacy Roadmap Taskforce (GCRT).
The Georgia Cybersecurity and Privacy Roadmap Taskforce (GCRT) is a statewide initiative to address Georgia’s challenge to produce enough qualified cyber-science and privacy professionals to fill the growing number of critical cybersecurity jobs within the state and close the workforce gap. The GCRT was set up to create and execute a strategic action plan that can inform and be implemented collaboratively across public and private education systems, including K-12, technical colleges, and university programs.
