The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is preparing to launch the 2016 Secretary’s Honors Program Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative. The initiative targets current undergraduate and graduate students and is a part of the Department’s efforts to build a cybersecurity talent pipeline by working with secondary and post-secondary institutions and other key partners in academia and the private sector.
Through the Secretary’s Honors Program Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative, students are able to learn about the DHS cybersecurity mission by completing hands-on cybersecurity work and building technical experience in key areas such as digital forensics, network diagnostics, and incident response.
DHS will announce the start of the 2016 Secretary’s Honors Program Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative program cycle within the upcoming weeks on http://www.USAJOBS.com. Here is a flyer with more details: DHS Flyer.
