This article proposes a holistic approach to developing the cybersecurity workforce based on careful integration of workforce development strategies into a plan that involves educators, career professionals, employers, and policymakers. Observations of the healthcare model, along with the findings of a recent workshop on cybersecurity education, suggest some practical steps for such an approach. Computer science educators, human resources professionals, and cybersecurity practitioners should seek to attract computer science graduates to think beyond their stovepiped fields and collaborate to develop, accept, and implement holistic, integrated solutions.
