DHS announces Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative
The Department of Homeland Security on Nov. 24 announced the launch of the
2015 Secretary's Honors Program Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative
for current two- and four-year college students. Beginning in Spring 2015, more than 75 selected students will complete volunteer assignments supporting the DHS cyber mission at department field offices in over 50 locations across the United States. Through this initiative, student volunteers currently pursuing an undergraduate degree related to cybersecurity will gain invaluable hands-on experience and exposure to the cybersecurity work performed across DHS. In addition to supporting activities such as cyber threat analysis, digital forensics, network diagnostics and incident response, selected students will participate in mentoring and professional development events with DHS managers and senior leaders. Applications for the 2015 Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative will be accepted through Dec. 12, 2014. Please visit the
