Cybersecurity Talent Initiative

  • Participants selected for the program will be guaranteed a two-year placement at a federal agency with cybersecurity needs. Before the end of their federal service, participants will be invited to apply for full-time positions with the program’s private sector partners. Participants hired by these companies will also receive student loan assistance.
    By working for some of the most important federal organizations and cutting-edge private sector companies, participants develop the skills and knowledge needed to protect our country’s digital infrastructure and tackle global cybersecurity threats.
