NYIT President Edward Guiliano’s Nov. 21st 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.
Building on comments he delivered at the 2013 NYIT Cyber Security Conference, Guiliano 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.
