Episode 12: Building the Cybersecurity Community of Tomorrow
Cybersecurity practitioners, as defenders of information, benefit from the fact that they are, in some ways, one large team, and the sharing of information and best practices as an industry and a community elevates everyone’s ability to protect their data. The passing of experience and expertise among peers is important, but staying ahead of emerging cyber threats requires recruiting and training the next generation.
John Johnson joins onSecurity to discuss CornCon, the cybersecurity convention he founded in Davenport, Iowa. CornCon’s growth is in large part due to it filling a growing demand for regional cybersecurity events, as well as the event’s focus on young professionals, students, and children, with programming designed to support and welcome the cybersecurity industry leaders of tomorrow.
