US Military firms recruiting hacker soldiers

It seems that the GFC is creating a movement of migratory hi-tech workers from Silicon Valley to the Beltway. I’m not sure that an unemployed IT security analyst turned hacker is the best choice for a defense contractor – the really good guys and gals are always in demand – and those DC summers are the pits. The weather in Mountain View is a lot nicer.

Daniel D. Allen, who works for Northrop Grumman, claims that federal spending on computer security now totals USD 10 billion annually, including classified programs. So there is a lot of lard in the pork barrel for cyberninjas who don’t mind the 95% humidity.  And with the recently publicized data breach of sensitive design and electronic systems data  from the $300BN F-35 Lightning II fighter project – there’s plenty of asses to be covered. Then again – with peace in our time looking to arrive by end of year from President Obama, we will not need all that hardware – I hear the beer is pretty good in Munich.

Here is the article on Presstv

Military giants including Northrop Grumman, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin and Raytheon are now busy with recruiting “hacker soldiers” to address the new demand for an unconventional cyberwar and in a way to blend the new capabilities into the nation’s war planning.
