The fact that we all nod to is that when we look at the cyber world, the dynamics are so funny as they are changing with every turn of the day something new setting in-it just changes in a rapidity we’ve never witnessed before. The fundamentals of the system are changing as fast in all spheres from the technology, the players, regulations and threats and in order for a country to remain safe, there is need for more qualified people to join the service who all the time seem to be unavailable.
This country is a victim of cyber attacks for these reasons mentioned herein. Failed defense lines and systems within the cyber systems is the first reason we always have for the vulnerability and constant cyber attacks. 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. The picture gets even more saddening when you look at the fact that on top of the inadequate recruitment to the force for cyber warriors, we have the existing ones leaving. We can see this problem getting to touch the community at large. This problem needs a solution from both the government sector and as well the players from the private contractor community. There is need in government to hire and retain talented and IT professionals without a doubt for the government to keep functioning adequately and at optimum levels.
The causes of government failure in cyber security are often for a number of qualified reasons in as much they will get doing quite too well in some other areas. 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. The government agencies are however hampered in realizing this need for agility and innovativeness given the rules and regulations attending the agencies.
The second reason for this is given the nature of the speed at which government does its recruitments-can be anything but fast. This usually estimated to be a process that will take at least an year or more.
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.
