Help Wanted: Homeland Security Seeks Cybersecurity Pros
I think everyone agrees that America’s IT Security posture needs improvement. This initiative from the Obama administration, in my opinion will help us harden our vital communications infrastructure making life harder for future Cyber attackers. It is also a great way to stimulate the economy by spending money on hiring some of the young sharp CISSP’s I see loitering around in NYC IT Security conferences. Below is the excerpt from InformationWeek.com:
“The Obama administration has given Department of Homeland Security the go-ahead to hire up to 1,000 new cybersecurity pros over the next three years, secretary Janet Napolitano said today.
The new hiring authority will let DHS, a key agency in the nation’s cybersecurity strategy, fill positions in risk and strategic analysis, incident response, vulnerability detection, intelligence, investigation, and network and systems engineering.”
