Martin Libicki, Senior Management Scientist, RAND Corporation

Over the past few years, there's been no shortage of frightening assessments warning the U.S. faces a serious shortage of qualified cybersecurity professionals. But a brand new report from the RAND corporation offers a fresh take. After an exhaustive review of existing literature and interviews with cyber experts, researchers concluded the situation right now is pretty dire, particularly in the federal government.

It's just a matter of how long it takes. Martin Libicki, senior management scientist at the RAND Corporation and co-author of the report, tells In Depth with Francis Rose about the broader picture behind the numbers.
