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. But there's also cause for optimism. Both the public and private sectors have already begun to respond to the shortage, and the problem may eventually solve itself. 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.
