Autism and the technical security industry
The technical security industry has a skills shortage. There is a need to develop the skills of its existing workforce to combat new threats and to encourage new talented people into the industry. The industry values some of the attributes associated with autism and already employs people who are formally or informally on the Autistic Spectrum. However, young autistic people do not necessarily know that the technical security industry exists and are therefore unaware of the job and career opportunities that the industry has to offer. We must make more people aware and provide structural and supported pathways for autistic people.
