Description

We’re going to take on a different aspect of the cybersecurity skills gaps in this episode. Namely, the lack of diversity in our industry when it comes to African Americans and what can we all do about it.
To facilitate the discussion today we are joined by AJ Yawn, who is a founding board member of the National Association of Black Compliance & Risk Management Professionals, Inc. (NABCRMP). He’s also co-founder and CEO of a company called ByteChek whose tagline is “We Make Compliance Suck Less” so I think we’re in store for a fascinating discussion.
