ISC has submitted a set of recommendations to the new federal chief information security officer on how to advance the government’s cybersecurity workforce during the upcoming presidential transition.
The company delivered the recommendations to Federal CISO Gregory Touhill, government officials at the White House and the Office of Personnel Management last week, ISC said Monday.
“Our goal in delivering these recommendations to Brig. Gen. Touhill is to support workforce prioritization and facilitate dialogue among those in the federal CISO community as critical decisions are being made during the upcoming presidential transition period, and beyond,” said Dan Waddell, ISC managing director of North America region and director of U.S. government affairs.
ISC noted that the workforce could be an organization’s cybersecurity asset or liability, according to the organization’s 2016 State of Cybersecurity from the Federal Cyber Executive Perspective report.
