Abstract:

For most established organizations, developing and maintaining a competent cybersecurity workforce needs little justification and is, in fact, a central requirement for ensuring resilient operations. As a result, these organizations invest significant resources in attempts to fulfill this requirement. However, most organizations find that the rapid changes and dynamic nature of cybersecurity make keeping their workforce up to date a very challenging problem. This report describes a traditional model commonly used for addressing this challenge, explains some operational limitations associated with that model, and presents a new, continuous approach to cybersecurity workforce development.
