Mar 9, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

$10 billion. That’s what cybercrime cost the U.S. last year. With cyberattacks sharply on the rise and more than 650,000 unfilled cyber jobs, we need immediate solutions to address the threat. Our nation’s economic prosperity and global competitiveness depend on it. There are millions of in-demand, well-paying jobs and no workforce to fill them. Join Lisa Gevelber, founder of Google’s economic opportunity initiative, and JB Milliken, chancellor of Texas’ largest university system, to discuss how we meet this urgent demand for a skilled and diverse workforce.
