Syneren CEO Attends Cyber "Jobs of the Future" Event at White House
Syneren Technologies Corporation, with offices in Lanham, MD and Arlington, VA is represented by Meg Vootukuru to discuss cyber job creation and security issues with Administration officials
Washington, D.C. - Syneren CEO Ms. Meg Vootukuru travels to the White House on Wednesday June 6th, where she will join Administration representatives and leaders from 20 private sector companies to discuss creating more "Jobs of the Future" in the cyber security field. Participants will also have the opportunity to share their thoughts with officials like Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano ---particularly their ideas on what the government can do to spur creation of new cyber jobs.
Ms. Vootukuru said about the importance of having a strong cyber security workforce/creating new cyber jobs: "In this ever changing dynamic environment with global competition and threats, it is critical that all businesses, small and large alike take a special interest in garnering the right kinds of skill sets in the workforce, especially in areas like cyber security."
According to President Barack Obama, the growing number of attacks on our nation's cyber networks has become "one of the most serious economic and national security threats our nation faces." To be adequately prepared, the U.S. needs to dramatically increase the number of people working in this crucial area. "The world is becoming increasingly competitive and some entities are not competing through honest innovation but through cyber theft of our intellectual property and business operations know how," said Larry Clinton, President of the Internet Security Alliance. "Defense in the cyber world is not just a government responsibility but an enterprise and individual responsibility. Unless we find a way to spur the market to create a cyber secure workforce, we risk unilaterally disarming both our economy and our national defense."
To meet this challenge, the Administration is funding new jobs in cutting-edge research, working to recruit top new talent in the cyber field, partnering with the private sector, and empowering the general public to create a safe, secure and resilient cyber environment that promotes awareness while respecting privacy rights and civil liberties - all key factors in building the digital workforce of the 21st century.
Throughout the event on Wednesday, participants from the business community will learn more about U.S. Government policies and upcoming projects related to cyber security from both Administration and cyber industry leaders. In addition to Secretary Napolitano, they'll meet with ICANN Chief Security Officer Jeff Moss and SANS Institute Director Alan Paller, along with surrogates from DHS, ISA, the National Security Service (NSS), the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE), and the Small Business Administration (SBA).
Ms. Vootukuru said about the cyber security jobs event-"Small businesses which are the engines of growth can contribute effectively to address cyber security threats through agile and innovative technologies and skilled human resources. I am looking forward to providing thoughts on how the government can help break the barriers to entry for such small businesses to become partners in formulating sustainable solutions."
