The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced the launch of the 2015 Secretary’s Honors Program Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative. This program is part of the department’s ongoing effort to develop the next generation of cyber talent, and in the coming months, DHS expects to place approximately 75 undergraduate volunteers in cybersecurity-focused assignments at more than 50 locations across the country.
Volunteers who are selected will have a unique opportunity to learn about the DHS cybersecurity mission and to engage in hands-on cybersecurity work related to digital forensics, network diagnostics, incident response, and a variety of other specialties.
Applications will be accepted
until December 12, 2014 via USAJOBS.gov. The deadline for applications has been extended to January 9, 2015!
Assignments will begin in May 2015 and continue throughout the summer. For more information, see the attached flyer or direct a question to CMSI@hq.dhs.gov.
