Cyber Student Staffing Boosts Productivity, Narrows Cybersecurity Workforce Gap at Sentara
March 14, 2018, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Daniel Bowden, VP & CISO, Sentara Healthcare. With a recent report from The Center for Cyber Safety and Education predicting a shortage of 1.8 million information security workers by 2022, health systems across the country are already grappling with the constraints of fewer people to defend and protect crucial hospital and patient data. To that end, Sentara Healthcare recruits students from around the region to work in the Sentara Healthcare information office as junior cyber risk analysis, junior cyber security analysis, and junior security development and operations analysts. These students work side by side with information security professionals to gain valuable first-hand experience, while freeing up full-time staff to focus on more detailed and risk-laden work.
