White House Executive Order Aims to Improve the Cybersecurity Workforce

Last Thursday, the White House signed an executive order that was meant to boost the federal government’s cybersecurity workforce. It will standardize and incentivize cybersecurity education and most importantly create a more uniform system so that everyone is on the same “cyber page” and work with a common cybersecurity language.

Brendan Walsh, SVP of Partners Relations at 1901 Group, shares with Peter Suciu of ClearanceJobs why cybersecurity matters, its impact on the country, and the ongoing issue of talent supply.

 “It is widely recognized that the supply of cybersecurity talent lacks behind its demand. Since our government’s general mission is to serve and protect its citizens, which requires IT systems and connectivity, our government is correct to help promote and grow cybersecurity talent across the country from urban technology hotspots to rural America.”
