The Clinton administration, saying there’s a shortage of qualified new professionals in information technology in the government as well as in the private sector, has dedicated $25 million in funding for a “cyber services” training and education initiative led by the Office of Personnel Management. The program will include centers to establish competencies and certify current federal IT workers and maintain their skill levels, scholarships to aid in recruiting and educating the next generation of federal IT managers, and a federal information security awareness curriculum aimed at ensuring computer security literacy among all federal workers. OPM also will identify and develop competencies for federal IT security positions and the associated training and certification requirements, as well.
