It's important to educate today's youth on the importance of cybersecurity and the plethora of roles available throughout the field. To celebrate NCSAM we put together an infographic on what the cybersecurity talent shortage looks like, how organizations can solve it, and how students can get on the right track - including enrolling at some of the nation's best cybersecurity programs
