Department of Homeland Security, shortly known as DHS, has launched a Cyber Talent Management System (CTMS) that offers a scope to recruit and retail cybersecurity talent. It is a kind of methodical approach made by the law enforcement agency to hire, develop, and retain the best talent in security.
As Information Technology usage is growing, the same old traditional hiring techniques won’t work while hiring for critical vacancies.
This is where DHS backed Cyber Talent Management System will help in recruiting the new talent as per a pre-specified government model of assessment, compensation and merit system where professionals can grow their career with a greater flexibility.
CTMS will first focus on filling the jobs in the CISA and then will bound to recruit over 150 security specialists for priority roles needed for 2022 in areas such as network forensics, vulnerability management and assessment and cyber threat analysis.
Currently, DHS has around 1,500 Cybersecurity related vacancies, of which over 1200 will be filled through CTMS.
NOTE- DHS is a federal department that handles security of the public by shielding them from threats related to border security, anti-terrorism, immigration and customers along with cybersecurity and disaster prevention and management. In the year 2008, DHS opened up a National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) that helps in training government and private individuals and companies with new cyber security capabilities. And it includes identity theft, online criminal activity, threats related to internet routing, and other online incidents. In the year 2009, DHS opened the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center that protects computer networks and networked infrastructure.
