TYSONS CORNER, VA, Nov. 8, 2016 — Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon‘s (NYSE: RTN) intelligence business segment, has said that the cyber workforce is as important as new technology in protecting the country from potential cyber threats and in event of a cyberwar, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.

“As cyber becomes even more tightly woven into the fabric of our national security, the rising demand for cyber talent will continue to outpace the growth of our cyber workforce, leaving a gap that must be filled, ” he wrote in a Federal Times article published Friday.

“If cyberwar were to break out it would take place on our commercial and civilian government’s networks, not just the military’s… We must ensure our nation is properly resourced for the cyber threats of tomorrow, ” he added.
