Submission + - U.S. Not Training Enough Cyber Security Experts (esecurityplanet.com)

graychase writes: Homeland Security's cybersecurity director, Richard Marshall, warns that universities aren't turning out enough cybersecurity experts and urges greater scholarship funding.

"Look at all the great football and basketball programs. They're all on scholarships. They're not playing for fun — they're playing for money," he said. "We need to do the same thing with our computer science students."

"The IT industry provides a one trillion — with a 'T' — dollar contribution to the U.S. gross domestic product," Marshall said. "If you're looking for a metric for cyber security, money is a good metric."

"Economic security and national security are joined at the hip," he added.
