The government is facing a short supply of manpower to handle cybercrimes. A senior official of the Internet Crime Complaint Center (I3C) reported in November 2004 that the FBI has been unable to recruit and retain the best available IT talent. Based on his interviews with current and former agents Blitstein (2007) noted that â€œthere are too few federal cyber-investigators, and that too little is done to retain detectives with advanced technical training.â€ According to the American Prosecutors Research Institute, the FBIâ€™s San Diego lab in 2005 had a 6-month backlog for forensic examinations (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Moreover, cybercrimes are increasingly sophisticated and new forms and methods of such crimes are developing at an increasing rate. Law-enforcement agencies lack resources and have failed to catch up with technologies enabling such crimes. Grow and Bush (2005) note: â€œ[C]ops donâ€™t have all the weapons they need to fight back [cyber-criminals]. They clearly lack the financial resources to match their adversariesâ€™ technical skills and global reach.â€ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (Links to an external site.)

The International Association of Privacy Professionals recently released its inaugural Privacy Governance Report (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.), which aggregates information from interviews with 791 professionals in the North American electronic privacy industry in the public and private sectors. A key finding of the report is that within government, â€œofficials tasked with maintaining the security of information gathered from American citizens feel understaffed, under-resourced, and demoralized in terms of their own prospects for career advancementâ€. 70% of privacy professionals working in government were concerned that their budget wasn’t sufficient to meet their obligations to protect citizens’ data and 63% reported that their organizations don’t spend enough money on training. The respective proportions were 59% and 48% respectively for the entire profession. In terms of the prospects for advancement, public sector respondents were 10 percent more likely than private sector employees to say that there was little to no opportunity for upward mobility for them within their group or within their organization as a whole (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
