Infosec Execs: Uncle Sam Wants You!A Different Type of Patriot Act
DHS seeks a special adviser for cybersecurity and communications integration planning, who would report to Michael Brown, a Navy admiral who serves as DHS deputy assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications.
By serving as a loaned executive, executives will have an opportunity to make a difference in securing our nation.
"By serving as a loaned executive, executives will have an opportunity to make a difference in securing our nation," a posting this week on the DHS blog says.
The loaned executive would provide "constructive feedback" regarding developing and implementing the integrated mission and operational plans for use in the evolution of the Office of Cybersecurity and Combinations. The job would last six months with an option for a six-month renewal.
The pay? Zilch. The loaned executive's employer would be expected to continue paying salary and benefits.
Who should apply? An American citizen who's a senior-level strategic manager with broad experience working with companies that have a major presence in the information and communications technology field.
