NYIT President Edward Guiliano’s commentary in The Huffington Post calls for institutions of higher education to address the critical need for a much larger, sophisticated, and innovative cyber security work force.
He states: “The call to action for universities is obvious: We need to innovate. We need to broadly incorporate information- and systems-security practices and principles into our academic programs. We also need to produce more graduates in this field.”
He notes that collaboration among industry, government, and academia is vital, but universities’ role at this juncture is the linchpin, and offers various calls to action.
