Good help is so hard to find.

This is an interesting read from CSIS: A Human Capital Crisis in Cybersecurity.  In a nutshell, it repeats the timeworn complaint that “there’s not enough good information security people out there”.  There’s nothing new there…we’ve heard it since before legions of self-promoters started using the ‘cyber-‘ prefix.

As usual, the prescription is education and certifications.  The paper does a great job of listing out the many organizations that offer information security certifications.  It proposes that these all be standardized, or unified under a government body.  CSIS put a lot of work into the background and the proposed action plan.  It is worth the read.
