Recent studies have shown that while there is a shortage of technical workers, the field of cyber security is rapidly evolving. In fact, former federal officials have estimated there are only 1,000 U.S. security specialists with the skills necessary to operate in cyberspace and the country needs about 10,000 to 30,000 such professionals.
USCC—a division of the not-for-profit Center for Internet Security—develops and conducts online competitions and on-site camps where talented people will be discovered, nurtured, and progress toward careers as technical cyber security experts.
