Cybersecurity Opportunities In Eastern KY

The need for cybersecurity is growing across the country and that includes opportunities for jobs in Eastern KY. “There have been issues nationally, even in metro areas and rural areas with ransomware attacks, cyber-attacks and things of that nature,” said Micheal Cornett, Director of Agency Expansion at the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program. Cornett knew this region had a need for these types of jobs. The Cybersecurity Workforce Development program, the first of its kind, is not in any other rural region nationwide, he said.”It is pretty innovative and a first step to helping folks in our communities compete for these types of jobs, many which can be done remotely without having to leave the region,” says Cornett.
