ACE Accelerator Network Sdn Bhd is ACE Group’s partnership with cybersecurity experts around the world. There is a real need for skilled cybersecurity professionals in both the private sector and in government with the security industry growing at a rapid pace. Recent studies have revealed that cybersecurity has a serious talent shortage globally despite the growing number of colleges and universities that offer majors and graduate degrees in the field. And with today’s cyberthreats becoming both more numerous and more sophisticated, finding, hiring, and retaining top cybersecurity talent has become even tougher.
Cybersecurity is indeed a global issue and the deficit of cybersecurity talent is a challenge for every industry sector. It is therefore everyone’s responsibility to help close the global skills gap and equip cybersecurity professionals with the knowledge and guidance they need. The lack of specialized education and training has made the entire cybersecurity suffer. ACE Accelerator’s mission is to identify undiscovered cybersecurity talents and entrepreneurs with huge growth potentials. The push to encourage these people to enter the cybersecurity field is on, harder now than ever. With our training and mentorship program, we aim to strengthen the capabilities of these talents, which we will then accelerate with our expansive business networks, ultimately paving the way to recognition by other industry players.
By increasing the diversity of the cybersecurity workforce we believe we will be able to create a broader pool of cybersecurity talent and to muster the right talent to develop rich responses to the increasing threat of cybersecurity attacks. Additionally, by engaging a community made up of industry stakeholders, and through the collaboration and knowledge-sharing that comes out of it, ACE Accelerator is determined to grow all of our talents into world-class players, offering a new level of cybersecurity expertise to organizations worldwide.
