Interns Down for What? - Tony Turner Derbycon 2014 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Interns Down for What?
Tony Turner
Derbycon 2014

Most of us have a hard time finding qualified security professionals. Most junior aspiring infosec folks have a hard time proving they are qualified enough for us to hire. This is a huge gap that many of us are struggling to fill. Internships provide a really low risk way for us to evaluate and mentor aspiring professionals. This talk will discuss how you can build an effective internship program at your employer and get involved in the local community to build an engaging pool of enthusiasts with the skills- drive and moral compass to be successful. We will also discuss what comes after the internship, and how to retain the interest of interns and help them meet their own goals. Stronger communities are infectious and breed amazing opportunities not only for organizations drawing from these talent pools but also for the next generation of professionals looking for ways to break in to the industry- do interesting work and engage! .
