IT World Magazine Interviews YES CEO on Cyber Security Program, Ukraine Refugees

Post-secondary Canadian institutions are increasingly offering cybersecurity courses to help fill the demand.  The latest is a not-for profit agency called Youth Employment Services (YES) that trains disadvantaged and vulnerable youth aged 15 to 29. Next month it starts a cybersecurity course with paid training in conjunction with IBM and funded by the Government of Ontario, Skills Development Fund.  “We’re excited to train more at-risk youth in an area of great need and help close the [cybersecurity] skills gap,” Lang said in an interview.  Surveys show there’s a shortage of cybersecurity workers in Canada.  He agreed with a suggestion that most employers want experienced IT workers. But, he added, YES has partnerships with a number of companies for job placement. The charity has been able to convince them to look beyond their desire for experienced people in many fields, he said, particularly of the value of hiring at-risk and racialized youth.
