There's a lot of belt tightening going on at agencies. But one group of feds aren't worried about budget cuts.

A new survey by Clearancejob.com says security professionals remain satisfied in their jobs.

Evan Lesser, director of ClearanceJobs.com and Dice Learning, discusses how potential impacts of defense spending cuts in obtaining and retaining skilled workers.

Some of the key findings:

  • Nearly 60 percent of workers are content with their jobs followed by more than half (58 percent) being happy with their current salaries.

  • 23 percent are concerned about potential contract losses or loss of contract funding.
