Bulgaria: Low Salaries Stand in the State's Way to Attract Good Cyber-Specialists MC

If we tolerate the hackers, nothing good is coming. The laws are not bad now, they just have to be obeyed. We want to make it easier for citizens, to have more electronic services, but if someone sabotage them constantly, we will go back to typewriters.

The Finance Minister and I will see if e-government cyber specialists can get higher salaries, Prime Minister Boyko Borissov told the media.

We can certainly be blamed for not having enough money for this protection sector. The wage ceiling is holdback to attract enough qualified people to ministries.

Around 100 people come to an interview for work in this sector. In the end there is only one person who wants to work with us, and that is in the best case scenario. Everybody say “Thank you!” and turn around when they hear about the expected wage.

The Prime Minister took part in the Forum on Public-Private Security Interaction: The Strategic Role of the Public-Private Partnership for Combating Cyber ​​Threats. At the event, senior Bulgarian government officials, ministers, businessmen and private sector officials watched a public demonstration of a hacker attack and laid the groundwork for a partnership to effectively counter cyber-threats.
