"Effective cybersecurity requires all partners—individuals, communities, government entities and the private sector—to work together to protect our networks and strengthen our cyber resiliency," said Secretary Napolitano. "This new hiring authority will enable DHS to recruit the best cyber analysts, developers and engineers in the world to serve their country by leading the nation's defenses against cyber threats."
Bruce Schneier, in his blog reported that Bob Cringley didn't believe there were that many such experts in all of the country.
DHS is specifically seeking expertise in:
* Cyber Incident Response
* Vulnerability Detection and Assessment
* Networks and Systems Engineering
* Cyber Risk and Strategic Analysis
* Intelligence and Investigation
So, if you're a budding hacker who wants to "come in from the cold" and are a US citizen able to gain a Top Secret clearance, here's your chance.
