This research examines the issue of supply and demand for cybersecurity professionals to determine how to optimize the output of cybersecurity professionals through a supply chain. It was found that progress is impeded by the lack of a clearly defined and standardized definition of a cybersecurity worker and their associated knowledge, skills, and abilities. There is a known shortage of cybersecurity professionals that is affecting the ability of the United States to fulfil the mandate of President Obama who declared that the protection of our digital infrastructure is a national security priority. The problem with this declaration is that a literature review confirms there is no standard definition of a cybersecurity worker, associated skills, or educational requirements. The cybersecurity workforce to which we speak in this report consists of those who self-identify as cyber or security specialists as well as those who build and maintain the nation’s critical infrastructure. Considering the criticality of the national infrastructure, it is time for the US to take immediate steps to coordinate the development of the cybersecurity field and its associated workforce supply chain.
