Peeler goes on to say in the original article in Dark Reading:
"...the security industry needs to do more to connect with children in primary and secondary school, as well as expand partnerships with universities. In addition to providing more mentoring, internships, and apprenticeships, the security industry needs to work with universities to create curricula that are nimble enough to respond to a rapidly changing industry."
In a similar vein, Dave Piscitello, VP Security at ICANN wrote recently about the need for more liberal arts education on the resumes of InfoSec job candidates:
"I work in InfoSec alongside respected colleagues who earned philosophy, physics, psychology, and political science degrees. I recently met former concert and improv flautists who are rock-solid privacy experts. STEM-centric education won't fill the short-horizon shortfall of cybersecurity talent -- and my head spins when I imagine the unintended consequences over the long term."
Another interesting point of view. I don't think it's a Catch-22 but a topic worth discussing. Any takers?
