Dan Jacobs, a security expert at the General Services Administration, said agencies should deal with cybersecurity with a focus on people and processes as they transfer workloads to the cloud, Nextgov reported Thursday.Â
âMany of the problems we face as a security community arenât actually technical problems at all,â he said Tuesday at a lunch hosted by Symantec. âMany times theyâre human problems. If weâre not equipped to deal with that, weâre going to continue to bang our head against the wall trying to figure out the way forward.â
Jacobs, senior security architect for GSAâs Technology Transformation Services and Centers of Excellence program, called on agencies to invest in bug bounty programs and threat intelligence and consider security as a team sport. Agencies should also reassess the types of skills they look for when hiring cyber professionals.
