The Government Accountability Office is surveying Americans' interest in cybersecurity jobs, reports Aliya Sternstein on NextGov.
GAO auditors hope to determine whether the U.S. population can fill the estimated 30,000 information security positions needed by the government and industry. Despite job openings and degree programs that advertise available cybersecurity jobs, not enough Americans are completing math and science degrees required to fill those positions, according to the article.
