Cybersecurity education report aims to address student 'confusion'
October 8, 2015
There’s a cybersecurity workforce gap — but that’s partly because students interested in the field don’t have a good grasp of the educational programs and scholarships that are out there, according to officials and a new report released Thursday.
The report, produced by the National Academy of Public Administration, the Center for Internet Security and Deloitte, offers several recommendations to streamline federal initiatives in cybersecurity education.
“There’s a lot of confusion out there with the students, and what is supposed to happen and where they should go to school and how they should map this out,” said Karen Evans, national director for the U.S. Cyber Challenge and former e-government administrator for the Office of Management and Budget.
