As we all know, in the cyber world, everything tends to work so fast. We are constantly witnessing changes in the cyber world touching on all the spheres of the tech world in the technology, the players in the industry, the regulations and the attendant threats all which put so much pressure on the governments and other concerned parties to have the required skilled and able personnel join their ranks but the sad fact s that they are never sufficient enough to take it up.
The countries are ever exposed to cyber attacks for a myriad reasons some of which are mentioned below. The common reason often leading to the proneness to cyber attacks is the fact that a particular country’s systems are not up to the challenge when it comes to cyber defenses. Reason number two for this sad state is that we do not have a sufficient recruitment for the battalion to join the forces for warring against the cyber attacks-it can be at least be said to be suffering. You can imagine how this all gets to be when you consider the fact that in spite of the inadequacy of the recruitments, we are seeing the already recruited ones leaving the systems. This problem is now being felt by the wider community. As such for the sake of addressing this need, we need a bit of a concerted effort from the both the private contractor community and as well the government agencies. The fact we cannot hide or run away from is that for the sake of seeing the governments upbeat and up to the task before them, they need to have in their service talented IT experts and pros therein.
Our federal governments perform exemplarily well in other areas but fail in cyber security for a number of valid reasons. Here are some of the reasons.
The first is that the gurus are such an asset in such a high demand whose search requires agile and innovative processes. However, government agencies are laden with a raft of rules and regulations which basically stifle this need for innovativeness and agility in approach.
The second reason for this is given the nature of the speed at which government does its recruitments-can be anything but fast. The pace is so low as to be averaged at being a period of not less than an year.
These are some of the reasons why the government cyber security agencies are resorting to the contractors for the provision of the necessary pool of employees to help then fill the opportunities and needs for the provision of cyber security at its best.
