Rushmi Hasham

Director, Cybersecurity Workforce Training

Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst, TMU

Rushmi brings a passion for reimagining the cybersecurity workforce in her role from the vision to attract non-technical, mid-career individuals who are ready to make a career pivot into cybersecurity. As a cybersecurity thought leader with a sharp focus on developing unique cybersecurity workforce development solutions, Rushmi is a frequent speaker at conferences and roundtables where she contributes to the national conversation on how to develop a national cybersecurity workforce. She firmly believes the way to solve the cybersecurity skills shortage is to reskill individuals, from all backgrounds and skills, who have high natural aptitude, but no formal cyber background. Rushmi is also a serial entrepreneur, having founded three businesses in the technology services industry. She firmly follows the doctrine that business has a responsibility in lifting communities and she has weaved those values into her own companies and into her work at the Catalyst.
