Monster Government Solutions and the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) have launched an actionable new web site, CyberCapital.us, to showcase the unique role that the greater Washington DC region plays in America’s cyber defenses: people, technology companies, education, intellectual capital, and government agencies. The goal of the site is to help drive awareness, employment, education, investment, policies, and programs in cybersecurity.
CyberCapital.us highlights the Greater Washington area’s position as a global epicenter for cybersecurity that combines public and private sector assets. The region, encompassing Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland, has a cyber workforce of 84,000 strong, boasts 14% of the nation’s total cyber job postings, and is a hotbed for cyber activity in firms ranging from the Fortune 1000 to a growing number of venture-backed startups. The region’s proximity, expertise and unparalleled experience in serving the federal government are critical, both in policymaking and actually protecting America interests.
“Securing our nation’s assets from cyber threats is a mission that touches everyone’s lives,” said Steve Cooker, Executive Vice President, Global Government Solutions at Monster. “The greater Washington region offers current cyber professionals and the talented people that are in the educational system today great opportunities to enter the cyber workforce, to support meaningful missions, or take their careers to the next level.”
Targeted at companies, cyber professionals, investors, educators, students, and government policy makers and agencies, CyberCapital.us showcases the cyber industry and workforce data with links to regional resources, academic and training programs, and jobs in Washington, DC, Virginia, and Maryland.
