OPM hopes cyber-job database will help agencies fill workforce gaps

The Office of Personnel Management wants to create a database of federal cybersecurity positions that it hopes will help agencies identify potential gaps in their high-tech workforces.

new memo from acting OPM Director Elaine Kaplan directs agency managers to collect, review and submit data by the end of fiscal 2014 on their existing positions and future cyber-hiring needs.

"This new databank will enable agencies to identify and address their needs for cybersecurity skill sets to meet their missions," Kaplan wrote in the memo to agency heads.
