Stopping cyberattacks is going to take all sides working together: individuals, agencies and industry. A three-pronged approach can accomplish this feat.
Though not directly funded by any congressional dollars, Biden’s cybersecurity executive order trails a watershed funding surge for government technology.
There’s just so much to secure, and with the infamous cyber skills shortage in government, teams don’t have enough hands for it all. But security isn’t locked into a losing battle; it can still catch up.

Administration priorities to emerge are grant funding, federal workforce compensation, equity, career development, cybersecurity and more.
