Military Shifts Focus to Cyber Security Jobs And Warfare
Wall Street Journal reporter Julian Barnes recently wrote an article titled “ Pentagon Digs In on Cyberwar Frontwhere he talks about how the military and the rest of the federal government is building its cyber security and warfare capabilities. This build up is in response to a number of recent cyber attacks against the government agencies and critical parts of our country’s infrastructure. It is also a response to the emerging ” Cyber Militias” springing up in countries across the world who are engaging in unsanctioned attacks on other countries. ( See article State of Cyber Warfare Threat).
Why You Should Know This Information
In this era of budget cuts and recessions, fast growing, well paying jobs are important to everyone. Many of us know someone who is unemployed or underemployed who is looking to better their career. These jobs may not be for everyone but the knowledge that they are coming is a good thing. Here is something else you should know:
After the Stuxnet Incident, a US News & World Report article reported that the ”federal government may have to hire up to 10,000 cyber security analysts and the private sector thousands more.” Couple this information with the purported $14 Billion of investment in Smart grid cyber security, the job market for cyber security will be robust for years to come.
Someone once told me “if you want to find jobs or any opportunity in America – follow the money” $46 Billion is headed to US Port expansion on the east coast. Jobs anyone?

The Ripple Effect On Jobs
U.S. port authorities and their private-sector partners are planning to invest up to $46 billion over the next five years in capital improvements in their marine operations and other properties, according to a recent survey by the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA). These projects are being done in response to the widening of the Panama Canal which will bring larger cargo ships and oil tankers to the east coast.
What these investments mean to you and me is simple: More jobs. Let me explain. In order for these facilities to handle the increased freight traffic every bridge, building, railway, road and tunnel for miles around the port must be upgraded. Congress is already considering a national transportation bill which will allocate federal monies for states to improve transportation infrastructure. The public and private investment into infrastructure upgrades could create thousands of long term jobs and stimulate thousands more through demand. For more information see the article below

If you have not been following the news, energy and jobs are two of the hottest topics of the presidential election. Over the next
few months voters will be inundated with each candidate’s plan to create jobs; achieve energy independence and lower energy prices. Of course, we are not going to take sides in the battle for the White House but we are going to talk about the one element that the energy & power sectors need above all else- People.
“Over 50% of the engineer and technician workforce will have to be replaced due retirement and attrition by 2015.”
Even in this economy, energy and utility companies are struggling to find qualified applicants for their open positions. Why? Believe it or not, there are still not enough engineering graduates and experienced professionals to cover the attrition and growth of the energy & power sectors. New environmental regulations, cyber security standards, smart grid deployment and retirements are driving utilities and energy companies to aggressively recruit more talent. My hope is that after reading this article and researching the job prospects more people will enter these fields.
