That, we would put before you as a challenge for your generation #YouthIGF, said Executives during the UN IGF @intgovforum High-Level Open Forum.

The #youth activism constitutes the vast part of our digital world.

What do you know about #cybersecurity job and how to enter this profession? Tips from top world executives to the #youth. #digital #skills #jobs #future #cybercrime
4. I think most of the people now doing any sort of education, the job they will do in the future potentially doesn’t even exist, it will only be created in the future. @dws_ch
3. If you really care about the topic, you’ll go far with lots of opportunities for you. And there are a lot of opportunities for women too. Long before I was doing cybersecurity issues as a prosecutor at the WH or the State Department, I had a passion for it. @C_Painter

1/1: Hello, my name is Anna and my question is the following. I would like to know whether it’s possible for those people who don’t possess some specific technical skills to still become aspecialist in cybersecurity. Thank you. @krupnik_anna
1/2: You need that combination, particularly as we need to convince our ministers, our CEOs and others. This is not a scary topic. You don’t need to be a coder to understand the importance and the innovative importance of cybersecurity. We need those people. @C_Painter
