The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has approved S-1097, which would boost career development opportunities for federal employees involved with cybersecurity by creating a rotational program allowing them to serve in other agencies.
That would give those employees skills and experience beyond their primary assignment and help them expand their professional networks while fostering collaboration among agencies, sponsors say.
The committee also approved:
* S-1330, to promote reskilling of current federal employees for occupations in which the government has difficulty filling positions.
* S-1143, to ban the social networking service TikTok from government-issued devices.
* S-1353, to set standards for the procurement and use by federal agencies of artificial intelligence-enabled systems, including privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties protections and requirements that agencies publicize their use of such systems.
* S-1316, to establish a cyber response and recovery fund in DHS to support public or private entities in responding to significant cyber-attacks and breaches that the DHS determines to be significant.
