Security Yearbook 2024 artificial intelligence cybersecurity jobs generative AI

Future of Tech and Cybersecurity Looks Bright Thanks to AI

TechSpective Podcast Episode 129


You may not have noticed, but the tech and cybersecurity job market has sort of sucked the past few years. Maybe it’s just me. My friend Richard Stiennon, research analyst with IT-Harvest and author of Security Yearbook 2024, joins this episode of the TechSpective Podcast to talk about the upcoming 5th edition of the Security Yearbook, and share his insights on why he thinks that is all about to change.

“Hiring has been frozen for the last 18 months, but my advice is, ‘Hang in there.’ All hell is gonna break loose,” declared Stiennon.

He adds, “I’m convinced that we are entering into an era that will make the boom seem like a blip. The world of technology is going to impact the entire economy. We’re going to be in boom times like none of us have ever experienced.”

What, you may ask, is the driving force behind Stiennon’s fervent optimism? AI.

Check out the full episode for more about what to expect in Security Yearbook 2024, as well as more about the impact AI and generative AI will have on the world–particularly the world of technology and cybersecurity. We also chat about the dubious reasons that many companies have used to let people go and why it is short-sighted and potentially damaging to a company’s brand to eliminate marketing or cut back too far, even when the economy is down.

The podcast itself is audio-only, but the video of our conversation is also available on YouTube if you prefer:
