David Egts

TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 8, 2018 — David Egts, chief technologist for the North American public sector business at Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), has identified open source training as an approach that the federal government can take to advance the cybersecurity and information technology skills of its workforce, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

“[The] open source community has put effective training on a number of topics, including cloud migration and deployment and cybersecurity, well within the reach of every agency and IT administrator,” Egts wrote in a Nextgov guest piece published Wednesday.

He noted that the availability of open source software works to enable agencies to train personnel cost-efficiently without the spending and licensing associated with use of proprietary software.
