        Basic idea of the hiring process and the time it takes.

            I'm curious to see how many people get called up for that job. This article from late 2011 has some interesting info on funding for new positions in 2012. It basically says 42 new positions, 14 of which will have cyber expertise. Ok, I was going to post the link but apparently I am not allowed to. Anyway, a quick google search for "FBI To Get More Cyber Crime Agents" from Information Week should get you there.

            Which makes me wonder, how many additional positions have been slated for 2013. On the justice.gov website there is a pdf document called FY 2013 Authorization and Budget Request to Congress. The key part for new positions mentions that the bureau requested 44 new positions - 40 (SA) special agents and 4 (PS) professional staff.

              I have read some articles saying how wildly behind the curve our government is in the world of Cyber Security. I think people, the general public, still have no idea how important cyber security skills are and will be in the next 20 years. It is kind of scary to think that a novice to mid-level experienced hacker could bring down entire networks, networks that could be used to power and control nuclear power plants and/or places like prisons. I have heard a lot of different things through the Cyber Conferences I have been to and the organizations I am affiliated with, but time will only tell if we decide to start getting serious about our cyber capabilities.
