Cybersecurity gets presidential recognition


Guess what, there’s one thing that both Donald Trump and Joe Biden  can agree on: that Cybersecurity is important to America. 

Back in May president Donald Trump signed a new executive order to build and develop the federal government’s cybersecurity workforce to close the feds’ cybersecurity jobs gap which is estimated at over 300,000 unfilled positions. In addition to allocating $11.4 million to fund the program, a new President’s Cup cybersecurity competition was established and a Cyber Talent Management System was erected to enable the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to recruit and retain rare, valuable cybersecurity talent. President Trump stated:

“America built the internet and shared it with the world. Now we will do our part to secure and preserve cyberspace for future generations.”

And now just recently on October 15th, Joe Biden hosted a town hall meeting. I’m not sure if you noticed, but he mentioned that the cybersecurity industry is growing rapidly and in need of talented individuals. Here’s what he said:

“The federal government spends billions of dollars a year on universities, because they are the best kept secret and where most major inventions come from. And so, schools will now be able to produce young Black women and men who are going into a field of the future that’s burgeoning, cybersecurity. And that’s what will help a great deal.”

Not only is cybersecurity important to the future of our nation but to protect the citizens here and now. According to the FBI, since the pandemic threat actors have increased their efforts over 600% to fool, steal, hold hostage and damage the reputations of our communities. We at Cylanda are here to serve the public as the last line of defense against the immense chaotic, evil, intelligent and aggressive, criminal on-line forces the likes of which we have never seen.

Thank you for giving us the chance to protect you and your company. We hope to bring you order and safety in this time of need.

Stay safe out there
