Strengthening the Federal Pipeline: Cybersecurity Talent Initiative
Nearly half a million cybersecurity positions remain vacant across both the public and private sectors, a gap that is only likely to grow in the coming years. The Partnership for Public Service is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to enhance the effectiveness of the federal government through several different channels, with a focus on the public servants that make government operate. Recognizing the benefit that cross-sector collaboration and diverse employee experience can offer government, the Partnership launched the Cybersecurity Talent Initiative to bolster government’s ability to recruit entry level cybersecurity professionals. This discussion will review the Partnership’s approach to strengthening government, the challenges that exist solidifying a cyber workforce to protect America’s most vulnerable infrastructure and a pathway towards strengthening the cyber pipeline.
