I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with [the cyber] threat.
Joseph M. Demarest Jr., assistant director of the FBI's cyberdivision:
We're fighting Ph.D.s on the other side of the world.
Remember, the United States has no monopoly on programmers.
It will always be true that most people who are great at anything are born outside the US.
More than 209,000 cybersecurity jobs in the U.S. are unfilled.
The number of jobs in information security is going to grow tenfold in the next 10 years.
The inability to find skilled staff to grow security programs remains one of the key challenges for the industry. By contrast, criminal hacking teams seem to be fully staffed.
