She wrote, “As cyberattacks become more prominent in both the public and private sectors, the need for competent and qualified cybersecurity professionals has also increased… As many individuals choose their career in middle or high school and early skill cultivation is deeply related to future career interests, starting to educate students in cybersecurity skills at the secondary school level would allow new opportunities for workforce development. Such programs could help to cull the labor deficit while providing opportunities for more diversity within career field.” Read the paper here.
