As digital innovation continues to transform and expand networks, much of the workforce now working remotely, and technologies like 5G making networks faster and more open, opportunities for threat actors have ballooned. This has made the chronic cybersecurity skills gap an even more glaring issue for many organizations—security teams are thin, short-staffed, and becoming ever-more strained. And individual users remain largely uninformed about how to spot digital threats or protect themselves and their devices. Luckily, Fortinet is dedicated to closing the cyber skills gap with our NSE Training Institute programs and Training Advancement Agenda.
The TAA is comprised of numerous training and education initiatives that emphasize supporting key groups—including young children, students, women, minorities, and veterans—to train or up-level cybersecurity professionals, cultivate a diverse talent pool, and improve cybersecurity knowledge around the world.
