A company can say all the right things and make promises and offer guarantees; however, it is all for naught without a workforce to turn those words into actions. Bumgardner also believes that talent acquisition is the number-one issue in the industry; in fact, yhree years ago, Bumgardner says company executives “stepped back and shifted our focus to our employees.” They started by creating a “culture committee” run exclusively by "We need to get young people to want to come into this industry," Bumgardner says. "We have to communicate how sophisticated systems are and get young people to understand how tech-driven the security industry is. We must let them know about the opportunities for growth."
