Seven bills were introduced in the Senate yesterday in a pro forma session specifically designed to allow the late submission of bills while the Senate started their five week summer recess. Of those bills there was only one that might be of specific interest to readers of this blog:
S 2007 A bill to create a consistent framework to expedite the recruitment of highly qualified personnel who perform information technology, cybersecurity, and cyber-related functions to enhance cybersecurity across the Federal Government. Sen. Bennet, Michael F. [D-CO]
Since the Federal government should be the single largest employer of cybersecurity professionals, their hiring practices should be of interest to other cybersecurity employers and employees alike.
