The Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA) is under contract to the Air National Guard to describe robust, sustainable and affordable means allowing it to obtain the human resources necessary to activate 15 cyber units in two years.
Consequently, IDA is seeking to engage private industry in open, forthright and serious discussions into the techniques, constraints and realities of attracting, identifying, hiring, incentivizing, and retaining highly-skilled cybersecurity professionals.
In addition, IDA would appreciate your perceptions of, and suggestions for, enhancing Air National Guard-Private Industry collaboration in cybersecurity.
IDA understands that recommendations to the Air National Guard must accommodate the goals, cultures and realities of private organizations as well as the creative and competitive personalities of highly skilled people.
Discussions can be for non-attribution.
