Europe aims to hire more cybersecurity experts

Europe aims to hire more cybersecurity experts 
Europe is confronting a shortage of cybersecurity specialists in the wake of revelations that the U.S. National Security Agency is collecting data from foreign nationals, experts say. The drive to bolster corporate and government networks is creating a boon for trained cybersecurity experts -- who may command as much as 25% higher salaries than comparable Web developers -- and is prompting universities to experiment with new programs, such as one at Switzerland's ETH university where students get into the mindset of cybercriminals by learning hacking.
