    Accenture launches free cybersecurity upskilling program in effort to fill 1 million entry-level jobs



    The number of cybersecurity attacks continues to increase each year and, problematically, the number of unfilled jobs in the field. In fact, reports indicate there are as many as 3.4 million open cybersecurity positions worldwide, with more than 700,000 open jobs in the U.S. alone.

    A number of companies are trying to solve this shortage, including Accenture, which announced today the launch of its Cyber Million program in partnership with Immersive Labs, a cybersecurity company.
