The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launched its Cyber Talent Management System (CTMS) on Monday. The program is designed to streamline the hiring process for multiple DHS agencies, including the Cybersecurity Service, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, and Office of the Chief Information Officer.
- The DHS is looking to fill 150 "priority roles" by early 2022.
- 1,000 of the 1,500 DHA-related cybersecurity vacancies are available via the CTMS.
- The DHS held its Cybersecurity Workforce Sprint earlier this year, hired 300 new workers, and issued 500 job offers, outpacing its initial target by ~50%.
- Jobs available via the CTMS will pay salaries of up to $255,800.
