VENUE:Zoom Online meeting
TOPIC:The Cyber Skills Gap War
PRESENTER: Stan Engelbrecht


For years now, different companies and governments have been sounding the alarm on the talent gap in cyber security. There are a number of factors that are causing this, from the continued advancement in technology, to the ever increase attacks on individuals, businesses, and governments and the impact of workload and expectations on those working in the industry. We will look at how these areas are trending, whether or not we are actually gaining any ground, and what can be done to fix this issue and who is in fact responsible for addressing this issue.


Stan Engelbrecht has spent close to 7 years in the SOAR space, from a product development, deployment, and advisory role to many of the fortune 500 companies. He is the current president of the Vancouver ISC2 Chapter and Vancouver Security Special Interest Group. Stan completed his BCIS with concentrations in Systems Admin, Networking, and Security from the University of the Fraser Valley in 2015 but has been working with and tinkering with technology since his mid teens. He is currently the Director of Cyber Security Practice at D3 Security.
