Re: K-12 to close the CyberSecurity gap
This is wonderful and should be encouraged.  Degrees should also be more accessible but that is a tough one because the subject itself is almost impossible to self manage and learn - and most of us do not have a few thousand in change in our pocket for a CIISP degree and course.  We need a better entrance ramp.  And IT itself should get more respect in the C-Suite than outsourcing here and there and hiring young and dumb.  We need to educate a new class of young and smart.  THEN we are making real progress and accept our mature and smart at the same time.  Experience counts heavy on this one.

K-12 to close the CyberSecurity gap
This article was music to my ears.  We have been growing the CyberPatriot program across Michigan for the last four years and truly beleive these students will fill the talent gap in Cybersec.  We went from 20 students the first year to over 700 students playing in an ethical virtual cyberdefense game from Nov-April each year!  We are doing all we can to expose these great kids to the many pathways into a cybersec career!  Many thanks for this well written article.  T
