TYSONS CORNER, VA, Nov. 1, 2017 — A survey commissioned by Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) in partnership with Forcepoint and the National Cyber Security Alliance has found that the level of interest in cybersecurity careers among millennials remains stagnant at approximately 38 percent, ExecutiveBiz reported Oct. 25.

The finding comes even as the annual survey also reported increased cyber awareness and serves to highlight the need to further advance efforts in cybersecurity, Raytheon said Oct. 24.

“The demand for skilled cyber talent has become a national security issue,” Dave Wajsgras, president of Raytheon’s intelligence, information and services business and an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017, has cautioned.
