"Look at all the great football and basketball programs. They're all on scholarships. They're not playing for fun — they're playing for money," he said. "We need to do the same thing with our computer science students."
"The IT industry provides a one trillion — with a 'T' — dollar contribution to the U.S. gross domestic product," Marshall said. "If you're looking for a metric for cyber security, money is a good metric."
"Economic security and national security are joined at the hip," he added."
