super-valuable opp for MIS students interested in Cyber Security

I know. It's holiday time. Everybody's relaxing & doing other stuff but I just saw this amazing opportunity for students seeking a career in Cyber Security and the deadline's coming up before the start of Spring semester, so I'm posting now, hoping people will see it in time.

It's a chance for students to work directly with cyber leaders in the US Dept of Homeland Security. Seriously. How impressive would that look on a resume? Not to mention all you would learn. And the networking potential is staggering. If  you have any interest in this field (and if your GPA meets the 3.0 minimum) then you should get your app in ASAP but for sure before the Jan 20 deadline.

Here's the blurb they sent me:

The Cyber Student Volunteer Initiative (CSVI) is designed to give students an opportunity to work alongside cyber leaders with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

CSVI offers summer opportunities to current undergraduate and graduate students. This nationwide program provides students the chance to gain invaluable hands-on cyber experience through challenging work projects, real-life scenarios, and mentoring from DHS cybersecurity professionals. This initiative provides a way for the Department to expand the pipeline of future cyber talent which is needed to execute the unique cybersecurity missions at DHS Component.

Interns will have the opportunity to apply concepts, protocols and tools acquired through coursework in the real world by working side by side with experts in cybersecurity. Student assignments focus on mission areas such as identification and analysis of malicious code, forensics analysis, incident handling, intrusion detection and prevention, and software assurance.

And here's their webpage with info & app.

Good luck!
