Insight on the NICE conference 2023
Stepping into the highly anticipated 2023 NICE conference was an incredible and insightful experience for those whom are looking for a job in the field or are currently securing a degree in such, and in this issue we bring forth the experience the NICE conference brought upon our participants.
The conference focused on “resetting expectations”; the accessibility for newcomers to be able to get into the cybersecurity workforce.
The conference was designed to equip you with the latest insights on the current workforce landscape, strategies and resources to help you with your education, as well as providing you with the tools to apply to cybersecurity jobs and overall, enhancing hiring processes for this highly demanded field.
