As we all know, in the cyber world, everything tends to work so fast. We are constantly witnessing changes in the cyber world touching on all the spheres of the tech world in the technology, the players in the industry, the regulations and the attendant threats all which put so much pressure on the governments and other concerned parties to have the required skilled and able personnel join their ranks but the sad fact s that they are never sufficient enough to take it up.
The countries are ever exposed to cyber attacks for a myriad reasons some of which are mentioned below. The common reason often leading to the proneness to cyber attacks is the fact that a particular country’s systems are not up to the challenge when it comes to cyber defenses. Reason number two for this sad state is that we do not have a sufficient recruitment for the battalion to join the forces for warring against the cyber attacks-it can be at least be said to be suffering. The picture gets even more saddening when you look at the fact that on top of the inadequate recruitment to the force for cyber warriors, we have the existing ones leaving. The impact of this is now extending its feel to the community at large. As a matter of agency, the solution to this endemic challenge lies n the hands of the government agencies and the input from the private contracting members. The fact we cannot hide or run away from is that for the sake of seeing the governments upbeat and up to the task before them, they need to have in their service talented IT experts and pros therein.
The causes of government failure in cyber security are often for a number of qualified reasons in as much they will get doing quite too well in some other areas. Read on and see some of the basic reasons attributed to the dismal performance in relation to cyber security.
The first is that the gurus are such an asset in such a high demand whose search requires agile and innovative processes. However, government agencies are laden with a raft of rules and regulations which basically stifle this need for innovativeness and agility in approach.
The second reason for this is given the nature of the speed at which government does its recruitments-can be anything but fast. The estimated timeframe required to hire a fully trained and high level clearances to join the government service is estimated at one year at minimum.
Given these bottlenecks, governments are looking to the cyber warriors contractors to supply them with the tank of personnel to join their ranks for provision of cyber security.
