Cybersecurity stakeholders in government, academia and industry in Fredericton, New Brunswick, wanted to develop a shared agenda to grow their cyber workforce and ecosystem.
Working collaboratively with the key committee members and other stakeholders, Stiletto conducted a thorough analysis of current university enrolment levels in cybersecurity-related courses and programs and future enrolment needs to keep pace with workforce demand. Stiletto worked with the stakeholders to determine how they might build workforce capacity and increase collaboration between institutions.
The cybersecurity workforce project Stiletto led resulted in:
An MOU signed by all key stakeholders within the ecosystem
Forecasted projections for talent pipeline development for cybersecurity over the next five years
A roadmap to scale enrolment along all career pathways
Alignment of mandate and mission for all post-secondary institutions (public and private) in the province of New Brunswick
Establishment of an Experiential Learning Working group to mobilize and pilot a provincial cybersecurity placement program
Asset mapping of key cybersecurity strengths on which to build
Identification of gaps and opportunities for research, innovation, and commercialization
An actionable strategic plan and roadmap to implementation
