This document is the March 7, 2018 hearing titled "Examining DHS's Efforts to Strengthen Its Cybersecurity Workforce" before the House Subcommittee on Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection and the Subcommittee on Oversight and Management Efficiency of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of John Ratcliffe: "Last month, the Government Accountability Office released a report entitled, ''Urgent need for DHS to take actions to identify its position and critical skill requirements.'' The findings are pretty troubling. While DHS has taken actions to idetify, categorize, and assign employment codes to its cybersecurity positions, its efforts have been neither timely, nor complete. Identifying DHS work force capability gaps and recruiting to fill them, is a problem that this committee has long examined. However, GAO found that DHS has not identified its Department-wide security or cybersecurity critical needs. Ensuring that DHS collects complete and accurate data on all filled and vacant cybersecurity positions for identification and coding efforts is a task that DHS must not ignore, nor fail to complete." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Ratcliffe, Scott Perry, J. Luis Correa, Michael T. McCaul, Bennie G. Thompson, Sheila Jackson Lee, Cedric L. Richmond, Gregory Wilshusen, Angela Bailey, and Rita Moss.
