'The US Government Just Launched a Big Push to Fill Cybersecurity Jobs
' by Liam Tung
Liam Tung writes the following for ZDNet:
The US Department of Homeland Security [DHS], a key cybersecurity agency, has just announced a new system that will help it recruit, develop and retrain cybersecurity pros in the federal government.
The DHS’s new recruitment system, dubbed the Cybersecurity Talent Management System (CTMS), launches amid a tight labor market for cybersecurity professionals who are in extremely high demand and can therefore command big salaries. …
It hopes the new system will help it hunt for and can keep talent for mission critical-critical roles, with the aim of hiring 150 priority roles across 2022. …
The first roles to be filled using CTMS will be ‘high-priority’ jobs at CISA and the DHS Office of the chief information officer. Then in 2022, DHS Cybersecurity Service jobs will be available across several DHS agencies with a cybersecurity mission, says DHS.
The CTMS salary range has an upper limit of the vice president’s salary ($255,800 in 2021), plus an extended range for use in limited circumstances, which has an upper limit of $332,100 in 2021.
