TYSONS CORNER, VA, Sept. 1, 2016 — Roger Mason, senior vice president for national security and intelligence at Noblis, has said government agencies and businesses should implement education and in-career training programs to set viable career paths in the field of cybersecurity, ExecutiveBiz reported Wednesday.

“Post-college training requires a mixture of applied development and on-the-job skills in order to make a difference there, ” Mason told ExecutiveBiz in an interview.

He said there are also generational factors to consider to develop the cyber workforce from recruitment to retention and career progression.

Mason, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2016, also noted that the work of cyber analysts have shifted from threat data collection to threat intelligence analysis as technology has largely performed the former task.
