As cyber crime continues to rise, the FBI is caught in a pickle: It can’t recruit enough agents who can hack a computer.

Now FBI Director James Comey is considering loosening some training requirements on physical fitness or marksmanship, the Associated Press reports. 

Comey has floated the idea of creating a special university for training cyber security agents who won’t need a firearm. The university would focus on the technical skills needed on the job.

“Our minds are open to all of these things because we are seeking a talent – talent in a pool that is increasingly small,” Comey said.

Another idea is ditching the requirement that agents who have left the service for more than two years most re-enroll in the difficult training academy in Quantico, Va.

“Our people leave, go to the private sector, discover it’s a soulless, empty way to live – and then they realize, ‘My life is empty, I need moral content in my work,'” Comey said to laughter during a recent speech at the University of Texas at Austin.
