Challenges in Cybersecurity Education and Workforce Development [May 16, 2017]   [open pdf - 455KB]

From the Introduction: "Increasing awareness of cyberattacks--and the increasing connectedness of cyber and cyberphysical systems--have led to concerns about whether U.S. homes, businesses, and government are prepared to secure themselves in a digitally integrated world. One of the most frequently raised concerns pertains to the sufficiency of cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development in the United States. Federal policymakers have raised questions about the quality and quantity of U.S. postsecondary education graduates with cybersecurity credentials (in general) and have raised concerns about the civilian and military workforce needs of the federal government (in particular)."
