Overview Edit

This Report focused on cybersecurity workforce improvements. It noted the shortfall in trained personnel for cybersecurity and called for expanded education and rigorous certification.

The Report recommended the creation of a governance body to develop and administer certifications in two or three specialty areas of cybersecurity, where rigorous certifications do not exist. The governance body should also develop criteria for evaluating other certification programs so that, using a federated model, other existing or future certification programs that meet its standards can also be accredited.

The governance body should also develop criteria for evaluating other certification programs so that, using a federated model, other existing or future certification programs that meet its standards can also be accredited. The organization could be created initially as not-for-profit and there would be an oversight of a board that would include representatives of each of the following:

  • Major private sector organizations that employ cybersecurity professionals;
  • Universities with major cyber education and research programs; and
  • Key Federal government agencies.

The role of the oversight board would be to direct and evaluate a two-year pilot test and, at the end of the first year, offer recommendations on whether/how the body should continue.
