by Maher, Malana, M.S., Utica College, 2020, 114; 28262979
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this paper was to aid in understanding and addressing personnel and skill shortfalls in the Department of Defense (DoD) cyber workforce by examining cyber recruiting, development, and retention programs with a focus on United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) and the four Service Cyber Components that fall under USCYBERCOM. A robust, skilled DoD cyber workforce is critical to protecting and securing the nation. DoD cyber workforce recruiting, development, and retention programs are limited in addressing cyber personnel and skills shortages. Improvements in DoD cyber workforce recruiting, development, and retention programs can help address personnel and skills shortages within the DoD cyber workforce.
