Octubre es el Mes de Concientización sobre la Ciberseguridad, y los expertos dicen que el país enfrenta una enorme escasez de personal capacitado para luchar contra los ciberataques. El fraude cibernético dirigido a agencias gubernamentales aumentó un 40% entre marzo y mayo de este año en comparación con los primeros tres meses de 2023. Tony Coulson, director del Centro de Ciberseguridad de Cal State San Bernardino, dice que a la fuerza laboral de ciberseguridad de EE. UU. le faltan alrededor de 660.000 personas.

"Hay alrededor de 1.8 millones de puestos de trabajo en ciberseguridad. Actualmente, alrededor de un tercio de ellos estan vacantes. Y solo en California, son alrededor de 35.000," explicó Coulson

En Cal State San Bernardino, los estudiantes aprenden cómo anticipar y defenderse de ataques cibernéticos y pueden elegir entre seis títulos universitarios y siete maestrías con componentes de ciberseguridad. La Agencia de Seguridad Nacional y el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional han designado el programa como Centro de Excelencia Académica en Ciberseguridad para la Ciberdefensa.

Tomás Gomez-Arias es decano de la Facultad de Administración Pública y Negocios Jack H. Brown, que alberga el programa de ciberseguridad. Dice que la diversidad en CSUSB - donde dos tercios de los estudiantes son latinos - les da a los graduados una ventaja.

"Uno de los mayores riesgos en ciberseguridad es ser predecible. Cuanta más diversidad, mejores soluciones encontrarán a los problemas que enfrentamos," expresó Gomez-Arias.

El gobierno federal ofrece un programa llamado Becas para el Servicio, donde los estudiantes obtienen dos años de matrícula gratuita más gastos de manutención, a cambio de un compromiso de trabajar durante dos años en una agencia gubernamental.
