Mari Galloway, Women's Society of Cyber Jutsu

It's no secret the U.S. faces some big challenges with the size and capacity of its cybersecurity workforce. But putting a finer point on those challenges isn't as easy. An all-week event at Virginia Tech tried to answer those questions. At the 2014 U.S Cyber Challenge Summer Cyber Camp, attendees got intensive training on discrete cyber skills but also an overview of the overall workforce shortage, and where their specialized skills might be able to help. Mari Galloway, director of finance for the Women's Society of Cyber Jutsu, was one of the 45 participants in this week's event. She tells In Depth with Francis Rose about a few of her main takeaways.

Jane Holl Lute, President and CEO, Council on Cybersecurity

The Senate would like to grant new powers to federal chief information officers and update federal IT laws that haven't gotten much attention for the past dozen years. Those are a couple of the effects of new legislation the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs approved recently. One of the bills is the Senate version of the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act -- the other is an update to the Federal Information Security Modernization Act, which Senators have been trying to modify for the past several years, without much success. She said on In Depth with Francis Rose the proposals are a big step in the right direction.
