The Need For Cyber Warriors-The Contractor’s Solution To The Need For Cyber Warriors
The fact that we all nod to is that when we look at the cyber world, the dynamics are so funny as they are changing with every turn of the day something new setting in-it just changes in a rapidity we’ve never witnessed before. 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. The common reason often leading to the proneness to cyber attacks is the fact that a particular country’s systems are not up to the challenge when it comes to cyber defenses. The “army barracks” for the cyber warriors is as well facing a threat for lack of enough personnel to join it. 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! We can see this problem getting to touch the community at large. As such for the sake of addressing this need, we need a bit of a concerted effort from the both the private contractor community and as well the government agencies. There is need in government to hire and retain talented and IT professionals without a doubt for the government to keep functioning adequately and at optimum levels.
Our federal governments perform exemplarily well in other areas but fail in cyber security for a number of valid reasons. Read on and see some of the basic reasons attributed to the dismal performance in relation to cyber security.
The first is that the gurus are such an asset in such a high demand whose search requires agile and innovative processes. The government agencies are however hampered in realizing this need for agility and innovativeness given the rules and regulations attending the agencies.
The process of hiring government employees is known for being quite slow with a real snail pace turn around. This usually estimated to be a process that will take at least an year or more.
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.
