SEC Chairman Jay Clayton told a Senate committee this week the efforts will include hiring more cybersecurity talent, saying “single actors dwarf the amount that we have available to spend in this area.”
As the Wall Street Journal reports, finding and recruiting these new workers won’t be easy.
“There’s a talent shortage and it’s even more emphasized at the federal level,” Rick Holgate, a research director at Gartner Inc., told CIO Journal.
