NSA Struggles to Retain Top Cyber Talent

“The National Security Agency is probably among the best-equipped parts of the federal government at recruiting, training and staffing an elite team of cybersecurity professionals… But even that’s not enough to stop some top-level technical talent from jumping ship,” according to Defense One .  

“It stings all the more as most depart after they’ve undergone extensive, specialized NSA  training… According to the report, 2014 marked the second year in a row in which the number of civilian federal cyber employees streaming for the exits outpaced the number of new hires.”  

“Government’s ability to shell out the big bucks is no doubt part of the reason for the attrition, at least at NSA.”
