The Defense Department must ensure the long-term utility and security of DOD networks in the face of increasingly sophisticated state and non-state cyber threats. Developing an exceptional cyber workforce through improved training and certification programs would represent a significant step in reaching DOD security goals. This paper examines the current impediments to effective cybersecurity workforce preparation and offers new concepts to create Cyber Sentries through realistic training, network authorities tied to certification, and ethical training. These actions present an opportunity to significantly enhance workforce quality and allow the Department to operate effectively in the contested cyber domain in accordance with the vision established in its Strategy for Cyberspace Operations.
