The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has recently created a cybersecurity fellowship designed to steer recent college graduates to careers in cybersecurity. The new Secretarial Honors Program will hire 50 workers across six areas, including IT, policy, management, and, of course, cybersecurity. Those selected for the program will experience:
- Departmental rotations
- On-th-job training
- Inclusion in numerous professional development programs
Furthermore, DHS has increased its own cyber workforce by 600% over the last few years in response to the ever increasing cyber threat. DHS’s National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) was established to build and maintain a national cybersecurity response system and implement a cyber-risk management program to help protect critical ifastructures.
NCSD Mission: To work collaboratively with public, private and international entities to secure cyberspace and America’s cyber assets.
