Nerd Alert!

The Department Of Homeland Security is looking for a few good nerds to populate a "Cyber Reserve". The idea is to have a collection of knowledgeable young minds on retention rather than farm this kind of thing out to contractors - sort of a digital National Guard.

The U.S. department’s immediate goal is to bring in some former government computer experts to fortify the weak spots in its security, then the plan is to scout fresh blood at community colleges. The Homeland Security task force that pushed the need for the Cyber Reserve also recommended that the department incorporate two-year training programs into higher education at certain schools. The programs could start as soon as next school year.
