Growing A Stronger Federal Cyber Workforce

  • Author(s):
  • Senator Angus King
  • Representative Mike Gallagher

The Cyberspace Solarium Commission (CSC) was established by the FY2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and tasked to identify a strategic approach to protect the United States against attacks of significant consequence in cyberspace. The Commission has recommended numerous changes to policy and legislation that impact virtually every element of the cybersecurity ecosystem. While the Commission’s recommendations address a broad range of issues, the need for a skilled cyber workforce is a recurring theme that runs throughout many of those recommendations. As the Commission’s co-chairs, Senator Angus King and Representative Mike Gallagher, have observed, “without talented cyber professionals working the keyboard, all the cutting-edge technology in the world cannot protect the United States in cyberspace. If we do not take action now to ensure that our talented and experienced workforce continues to grow, we are leaving our country vulnerable to future cyber attacks.”
