TechConnect West Virginia held a strategic initiative meeting to discuss the future of cybersecurity and how the state can capitalize on the opportunities.
With nearly 1,000 cybersecurity jobs opened currently in West Virginia, and more than 100,000 across the United States, the developed partnership with the West Virginia Office of Technology, Hiigh Technology Consortium, the West Virginia National Guard and West Virginia Forward aims to train and employ state residents in the fields of cybersecurity.
“We want to talk about the work going forward in 2019. This is going to require a outreach effort on all of our parts to help students understand there are opportunities in cyber security and what you need to be doing now to be qualified for those jobs,” said Anne Barth, executive director of TechConnect.
