A shortage of cybersecurity IT workers

In the continuing debate over whether we have a shortage of IT (or STEM more generally) people or not, here’s an argument from NPR that (at least) we need more cybersecurity folks.

What’s worse: U.S. security officials say the country’s cyberdefenses are not up to the challenge. In part, it’s due to a severe shortage of computer security specialists and engineers with the skills and knowledge necessary to do battle against would-be adversaries. The protection of U.S. computer systems essentially requires an army of cyberwarriors, but the recruitment of that force is suffering.
