There is no denying that ongoing efforts to improve our cybersecurity posture is of national importance. Within the Federal Government, our cybersecurity strength is enhanced by acting together to build a unified cybersecurity workforce capability across the Federal enterprise.

To support this collective action, cybersecurity workforce community leaders will host a Summit for Federal employees on April 27, 2021. 

The Federal Cybersecurity Workforce Summit will feature colleagues who are working first-hand on initiatives geared toward attracting and strengthening vital cybersecurity talent webinar series where experts share information about the federal cybersecurity workforce.

Objectives:

  • To provide strategic and program updates from key departments and agencies that influence cybersecurity workforce legislation, policy, guidance, and standards
  • To highlight key projects and initiatives that support the growth and sustainment of the Federal cybersecurity workforce
  • To create a sense of community among individuals in Federal departments and agencies with similar responsibilities for building a superior cybersecurity workforce
