The national network of cyber communities, CyberUSA, has partnered with Superus Careers in launching the Cyber Career Exchange platform, aimed at supporting national, regional, and state-level communities to fill a growing gap in cybersecurity jobs. Cybersecurity talent gaps exist across the country with nearly 600,000 unfilled positions, according to CyberSeek, a data analysis and aggregation project supported by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE). Closing these gaps requires detailed knowledge of the cybersecurity workforce.
The Cyber Career Exchange is a specialized recruiting platform focused specifically on cybersecurity. The specialized methodology provides a system for employers to find potential employees based on job skills and education; job seekers and employers to certify job skills and education; for the upkeep and maintenance of career related skills for candidates; a methodology for finding & developing candidates; and (future development) partnership workflow for associations, schools or other organizations to deploy the ‘Cyber Career Exchange’.
“I am proud of our advancements over the past 6 years in connecting cyber communities across the country. Starting with seven statewide cyber communities and growing thirty states to date has provided tremendous value in shaping the cybersecurity landscape at both the state and federal levels,” said CyberUSA’s Co-founder David Powell, “With growing threats and talent shortage more has to be done. The most immediate solutions to filling the open cyber jobs is to provide a system, hosted within trusted communities across the US, designed specifically to help employers and candidates easily find one another. The Cyber Career Exchange accomplishes that goal and more.”
“Having worked within and recruited for Financial Services and Healthcare organizations, I understand the vulnerabilities, especially with a shortage that exists in the workforce,” said Superus Careers CEO, Larry Silver. “I am excited for us to play our role in filling that void from an employment standpoint, which will have a positive impact on generations to come,”
