The Nation’s vision of a cybersecurity workforce that safeguards and promotes America’s national security and economic prosperity requires collective action from the public and private sectors. In order to prepare, grow, and sustain the Nation’s cybersecurity workforce we must align education and training with the cybersecurity workforce needs of employers and prepare individuals for lifelong careers.
