Why grow em, when we can just H1B'em from other countries. :)


I've done that, both. Basically, take smart security wise guys from (foreign) Unis, and bring them into a heavy security project. Dump all your knowledge on them. It works.

But it only goes so far as the leader who does the teaching. It works if you are you, or I am me. But it goes no further than what you or me know, and even if we assume we know enough, what is the leader at DHS capable of?

The reason DHS thinks they need these experts is that all they can think of to stop the bleeding is pile on extra layers of what's not working now.

If you keep adding increasing layers of complexity, of course sooner or later everyone from the janitor and up will need a black belt in IT security.
