Recent high-profile cybersecurity attacks show that both the public and private sectors are at risk. The Biden administration has a new plan for a “whole-of-nation” effort to address cyber threats. The White House says nearly half a million cybersecurity jobs in both the public and private sectors remain vacant.

  • Ari Schwartz, managing director of cybersecurity services at Venable and former special assistant to the president and senior director for cybersecurity, said the initiative aims to include every part of the government and private sector in the discussion, bringing in leaders from multiple industries.
  • Schwartz said he expects to see more regulations and mandates in the future for the federal government, contractors, critical infrastructure suppliers and regulators.
  • The government has tried to get colleges and universities to encourage people to go into cybersecurity as part of a long-term push to fill open jobs, said Schwartz.
