Abstract

Strengthening Federal Cybersecurity: Best Practices for Recruiting, Developing, and Retaining Cyberworkers in Government
Developed by the Evolving the Workforce Community of Interest
Date Released: August 9, 2016

Managing cybersecurity programs to keep up with rapidly changing technologies and emerging threats is a major challenge for federal agencies and the companies that support them. 

Providing a cybersecurity workforce with sufficient skills and capacity to address those challenges, on an ongoing basis, is one of the biggest obstacles organizations face in achieving their cybersecurity goals.

ACT-IAC developed this report to provide detailed ideas to strengthen the federal cybersecurity workforce based on case studies of successful practices in government agencies and commercial organizations.  This report provides practical, useful information about ways organizations can enhance and sustain their cybersecurity work forces.
