The era of cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), automation and online collaboration tools has accelerated digital and human connectivity. These new hybrid human-digital ecosystems are often fragile, with the cyber threat landscape becoming increasingly sophisticated as malicious attackers take advantage for profitability, sabotage, and espionage. As organisations look to improve their cyber-resilience, they are faced with another problem - a talent shortage. This hurdle has jeopardised the ability of organisations to act swiftly and decisively to safeguard against dynamic cyber threats.

PwC Hong Kong (“PwC”) recognises the need to act swiftly to reduce the cyber talent shortage, and has partnered with Xccelerate Global Hong Kong Limited (“Xccelerate”) to prepare bespoke cyber-specific learning content that will help upskill and reskill talents. The aspiration is to serve up cyber content that is inclusive of all demographics and technical backgrounds. In this way, organisations and the wider society can have sustainable access to a talent pipeline that will aid them in protecting data and systems, mitigate cyber risks, and improve resilience against cyber threats.

We'll talk about:

  • The supply and demand on cyber security talent
  • Reasons for talent shortage
  • Cyber School and Bug Bounty program to address the talent shortage
  • Student's journey at Cyber School
