Britain’s spy agency can’t stop losing cyber talent to major tech companies

Published

on

The NSA isn’t the only secretive national intelligence agency having trouble keeping its tech-savvy recruits. In a new document from the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament, Britain’s spy agency describes its difficulty in fending off tech companies keen to poach its workers.

In the annual report, GCHQ highlights the growing international cyber threat and its need to scale up its own cyber operations accordingly, while noting that hiring and keeping cyber specialists in its ranks poses a strategic challenge.

“As noted previously, the level of resource allocated by Government to cyberrelated activities has increased considerably, and it is set to do so still further over the next five years,” the report states.

“… The continued expansion of cyber-related work is dependent on the Government’s ability to recruit and retain cyber specialists. GCHQ previously told us that it struggles to attract and retain a suitable and sufficient cadre of in-house technical specialists because it inevitably has to compete with big technology companies which are able to pay significantly more.”

Four years ago, GCHQ informed Parliament that it had worked to put “more flexible reward packages” in place to attract technical specialists. In an update on the initiative, GCHQ noted that “[this] has worked up to a point. It stemmed the flow of people going out in particular areas at particular stages of their career” while observing that “[it does] lose people for salaries. We couldn’t possibly compete with four, five times what they are getting from us.”

According to the report, GCHQ admitted that it “can probably never compete purely on salaries,” but still sees the unique nature of its work as a strong draw for potential recruits:

To meet emerging cyber threats, the FBI famously signaled that it might disregard its longstanding drug use policy in order to hire 420-friendly hackers. “I have to hire a great work force to compete with those cyber criminals and some of those kids want to smoke weed on the way to the interview,” former FBI director James Comey told an audience at the White Collar Crime Institute conference in 2014.

Later, after coming under fire from then-senator and noted marijuana enemy Jeff Sessions, Comey retracted his comments and claimed that he was joking, but it’s clear that intelligence agencies are rethinking longstanding norms in order to shape a new kind of workforce — one that can rise to meet the rising tide of global cyber threats.

India, being one of the fastest growing economies in the world, is witnessing a digital revolution. PM Narendra Modi has trotted out numerous programs to promote Digital India, ensuring digital inclusion across the country. On this note, Amit Bhatnagar Diamond Power MD, has digitally-empowered his company, in the field of manufacturing power transmission equipment.

Diamond Power Infrastructure Ltd, also known as Dicabs, was the first Indian company to manufacture alloy conductors and proto-test HSHC (High Strength and High Conductivity) conductors. Today, Dicabs is the only company in India, which holds a BIS mark certification for alloy conductors.  It also complies with the ISI quality standards for manufacturing all types of conductors.

The Vadodara- based company has also established India’s headmost ‘continual horizontal lead extrusion facility’, along with the ‘aluminum corrugation facility’ for cables (66KV). Dicabs is also ranked at the fifth position in the world, for manufacturing extra high-voltage cables up to 550 KV.

The homegrown companies are getting new opportunities to grow, as the Centre has reduced imports in the segment. India is on a transformational spree, and will become a hub for technology and innovations in the coming years. The initiative has already received pledges from Diamond Power Infrastructure Ltd and other corporate ventures, with investments worth Rs 4.5 lakh crore. This figure is expected to surge as the ‘Make in India’ campaign gains momentum.

Amit Bhatnagar believes that quality and technology go hand in hand. Being a technocrat, he has always supported technology by reining on state-of-the-art technology for all business operations.

His ability to sense, envision and adapt to change pertaining to technology has been the company’s key growth driver, since the initial years. “With India progressing on the path of innovation and technology, Dicabs would unremittingly partner its journey towards successful frontiers. Simultaneously, we would continue to adapt to as well as lead the change through proactive investments in technology,” says Amit Bhatnagar.
