Cisco/I4G Cybersecurity Scholarship is a joint partnership program between Cisco and I4G to train African youths and help them build careers in Cybersecurity
According to a report by Cybersecurity Ventures, the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs grew from 1 million positions in 2013 to 3.5 million in 2021.
A lot of these roles are still yet to be filled because of a lack of talent. Yet, predictions show that there would be the same number of openings in 2025.
