It also will examine critical needs in training and education and explore how the public and private sector are working together to fill those gaps.
The webinar will be moderated by Laura Bate, Senior Director and Task Force Three Lead for the U.S. Solarium Commission; panelists include:
Dr. Mark Hagerott: Chancellor, North Dakota University System;
Dominique Walsh: Program Manager for the Apprenticeship: Closing the Skills Gap Grant Program, Cybersecurity Center for Business;
