Solution Spotlight on the 2024 NICE Conference: Business Roundtable.

Show Notes

As part of our series on the 2024 NICE Conference, we turn our focus to the Business Roundtable. This year’s conference theme “Strengthening Ecosystems: Aligning Stakeholders to Bridge the Cybersecurity Workforce Gap” highlights the collective effort to strengthen the cybersecurity landscape. By joining forces with key partners, we can foster a more robust cybersecurity ecosystem to bridge the workforce gap. Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of America’s leading companies working to promote a thriving U.S. economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.

The Business Roundtable launched its Cybersecurity Workforce Corporate Initiative in December of 2022. In coordination with its members and inputs from experts at Department of Commerce’s National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), it recently released a Cybersecurity Workforce Playbook to help employers create entry points to cybersecurity careers and strengthen cybersecurity talent pipelines across various industries and sectors.

Simone Petrella, N2K President, speaks with Erin White, Business Roundtable's Senior Director, Corporate Initiatives, about the Cybersecurity Workforce Corporate Initiative, the recently released Cybersecurity Workforce Playbook, key takeaways for the private sector, and how the Business Roundtable and NICE are working together to support these initiatives.
