The Commission on Cybersecurity for the 44th President looks into manpower challenges. The report, called "A Human Capital Crisis in Cybersecurity," says that the country has a shortage of people with technical skills to operate the existing systems and a shortage of people with the skills to create new, more secure systems. The report focuses on people who consider themselves cybersecurity specialists in the government, among contractors, and in the private sector.
