Stopping Brain Drain in Federal IT Security
Posted by Force 3 | May 11, 2016
As government leaders increasingly prioritize cyberspace’s role in national security, a critical deficiency has begun to reveal itself: The best and brightest IT security professionals all too frequently migrate to the presumably greener—or at least more equitable—pastures of the private sector.
That doesn’t bode well given the fact that the federal government needs to hire an estimated 10,000 cybersecurity experts in the next several years. Stopping the brain drain of existing federal IT security talent is imperative, especially as national security threats increasingly take place not on land but in the complex and obscure world of cyberspace. And while the challenge is real, potential solutions are within grasp.
In this blog penned for Federal Computer Week, Force 3 director of security practice Greg Kushto discusses the growing problem of “brain drain” in the federal IT security sector—including potential solutions. Read Stopping the Federal IT Security Brain Drain.
