The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced “a new personnel system that will enable DHS to more effectively recruit, develop, and retain our Nation’s top cybersecurity professionals” – the Cybersecurity Talent Management System (CTMS). Its aim is “to recruit and retain world-class cyber talent”.
“The DHS Cybersecurity Talent Management System fundamentally re-imagines how the Department hires, develops, and retains top-tier and diverse cybersecurity talent,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro N. Mayorkas. “As our Nation continues to face an evolving threat landscape, we cannot rely only on traditional hiring tools to fill mission-critical vacancies. This new system will enable our Department to better compete for cybersecurity professionals and remain agile enough to meet the demands of our critical cybersecurity mission.”
