The Stockholm #CyberThursday Learning Event: 7 November 2019 — RSVP Required

HERNDON, Va. –  Oct. 24, 2019 – Learning Tree International is hosting an RSVP-only event on 7 November 2019 at our offices in Stockholm, Sweden, to discuss what skills today’s workforce needs to defend against tomorrow’s cyber threats. Attendees will also be introduced to a scalable set of products and services to support organisations as they work to transform themselves through the development of their workforce.

“With 23% of IT leaders reporting that workforce skills gaps are a more damaging threat to cyber security than budget constraints,[1] now is a critical time to have a frank and thorough discussion about the cyber security skills gap, and what organisations can do about it,” said Richard A. Spires, Learning Tree CEO and former CIO of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Mr. Spires will be in attendance at the Stockholm Cyber Learning Event to discuss the need to view cyber risks from the front lines to the top, and will demonstrate cyber learning paths aligned to the NICE Cybersecurity Framework.
