Training – My Most Valuable Advice
The cyber world is one which has a lot of dynamics seeing everything about it happen so fast. The fundamentals of the system are changing as fast in all spheres from the technology, the players, regulations and threats and in order for a country to remain safe, there is need for more qualified people to join the service who all the time seem to be unavailable.
This country is a victim of cyber attacks for these reasons mentioned herein. Failed defense lines and systems within the cyber systems is the first reason we always have for the vulnerability and constant cyber attacks. The second reason is the fact that we do not have adequate recruitment of the right cyber warriors. The rather even further disturbing fact is that in addition to the fact of suffering recruitment, the country is also witnessing the exit of the already acquired personnel in its battery-see how grim it all gets to be! This problem is now being felt by the wider community. This problem needs a solution from both the government sector and as well the players from the private contractor community. The fact we cannot hide or run away from is that for the sake of seeing the governments upbeat and up to the task before them, they need to have in their service talented IT experts and pros therein.
Our federal governments perform exemplarily well in other areas but fail in cyber security for a number of valid reasons. Here are some of the reasons.
This quite well qualifies for a first point for validating the dismal performance-the fact that these personnel are such wh are in such a high demand as to make the search process for them to be one which is agile and innovative. The government agencies are however hampered in realizing this need for agility and innovativeness given the rules and regulations attending the agencies.
The second reason for this is given the nature of the speed at which government does its recruitments-can be anything but fast. The estimated timeframe required to hire a fully trained and high level clearances to join the government service is estimated at one year at minimum.
These are some of the reasons why the government cyber security agencies are resorting to the contractors for the provision of the necessary pool of employees to help then fill the opportunities and needs for the provision of cyber security at its best.
