Building a Resilient WorkforceReport Offers Guidance for Governors, Policymakers on Dealing With Technological Disruption
Rachael Stephens, program director at the National Governors Association, discusses a new report offering insights into ways that governors and state policymakers can nurture a resilient workforce amid technological disruption, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stephens advises CISOs to examine their talent search and retention strategies. “Are you really being honest about the skills and education background you need in your new hires or are you putting false barriers in place?” she asks.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Stephens discusses:
- The challenges governors and other state policymakers face in ensuring a resilient workforce;
- What government agency CISOs can learn from the NGA study;
- NGA’s recommendations for building a resilient workforce amid technological disruption.
Stephens serves as the director of the workforce development and economic policy program in the National Governors Association’s Center for Best Practices. She oversees workforce development and economic policy, research and technical assistance provision to governors and states.
