Cybersecurity Human Capital: Initiatives Need Better Planning and Coordination

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued this eighty-six page report in November 2011 to address the threats to federal government information systems and infrastructures.

Taking into account the information from these assessments, the GAO made workforce recommendations for six of the eight agencies they evaluated.
