Why Georgia State's new cyber workforce program is different

A new cybersecurity training and mentorship program at Georgia State University will match 60 students over the next two summers with chief information security officers in organizations around the Southeast. David Maimon, an associate professor leading the academic side of the program, told EdScoop that it's designed not only to give students "practical experience," but also to introduce evidence-based cybersecurity practices to industry. “What’s missing right now is ways to check the effectiveness of policies and tools in the context of cybersecurity,” Maimon said.

The latest evidence came in a McAfee report on an ongoing hacking campaign aimed at spying on defense firms. Sean Lyngaas has the details.

Cyber jobs are unfilled, even in the current climate

The shortage in qualified cybersecurity practitioners has affected 70% of the companies polled by the Enterprise Strategy Group, a market research firm. It's a problem that's complicated by a lack of clear career path for cyber pros, and that security careers depend on hands-on experience, which can be hard to come by without specific certifications. The effect, for would-be hiring companies, is an increased workload, and a failure to deploy cyber technologies to their fullest potential, resulting in potential vulnerabilities.
