cybersecurityBooz Allen Hamilton and the Partnership for Public Service have released a joint report calling on the White House to develop a “comprehensive” framework to bolster the federal cybersecurity workforce, Nextgov reported Monday.

Jack Moore writes the “Cyber Insecurity II: Closing the Federal Talent Gap” report also recommends an expansion of cyber talent recruitment initiatives across the government.
