An official website of the United States government
The .gov means it’s official.
Federal government websites always use a .gov or .mil domain. Before sharing sensitive information online, make sure you’re on a .gov or .mil site by inspecting your browser’s address (or “location”) bar.
This site is also protected by an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate that’s been signed by the U.S. government. The https:// means all transmitted data is encrypted — in other words, any information or browsing history that you provide is transmitted securely.
FUTURE READY WORKFORCE
To help close the productivity gap in government, the Federal Government needs a ‘future ready’ workforce
equipped with the modern tools and technologies they need to serve the American people effectively, smart
telework policies that give Federal employees increased flexibility, while also reducing the government’s
real estate footprint and better the ability of the government to function effectively during an emergency.
The government also needs to be strategic about how it buys, manages and uses mobile devices and collaboration tools
cost-effectively and securely.
Cybersecurity is a growing area of importance that will continue to require
Action Plan (CNAP) includes many provisions to expand the cybersecurity workforce. The CNAP includes provisions
to enhance student loan forgiveness programs for cybersecurity experts joining the Federal workforce and catalyzing
investment in cybersecurity education as part of a robust computer science curriculum through the
Computer Science for All Initiative.
The Scholarship for Service program will be expanded to include the CyberCorps Reserve which will offer scholarships to Americans who wish to
obtain an education in cybersecurity. The National Centers
for Academic Excellence in Cybersecurity Program will also be expanded and support for it will be strengthened. Together,
these initiatives aim to develop a robust workforce that will effectively meet the nation’s cybersecurity personnel requirements.
