Make a difference in Public Service – Join CISA!


By Deputy Director Nitin Natarajan

This week, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) joins government partners across the nation to celebrate and thank all of those who have dedicated their careers to public service. While their service may not always make headlines, public servants play a vital role in making our communities safer, healthier, and more secure.

CISA is an incredible place to work with a truly amazing mission! Our agency has a unique and important mission, responsible for protecting the nation's critical infrastructure from cyber threats, physical attacks, and other hazards. We help protect those assets and systems that most of us take for granted and don’t often think about-from turning on a light switch to opening a faucet. From ensuring the security and resilience of our election systems to protecting our physical infrastructure and the information technology and operational technology that they depend on, CISA's work is essential to our national security. From our work on protecting soft targets such as stadiums and commercial buildings to our work on bombing prevention and emergency communications, CISA does it all.

But we can't do it alone. That's why we are always seeking to grow our team and hire talented individuals who are passionate about public service and our mission to join our team.

Working at CISA means being part of a mission-driven organization that makes a real difference in people's lives. It means being part of a team of cyber and physical security professionals who are dedicated to protecting our nation from some of the most complex and dangerous threats we face and all the expertise needed to enable those missions to be successful.

CISA isn't just a job. It's a calling. It's an opportunity to use your skills and expertise to make a real difference in the world. Whether you are a recent college graduate, a seasoned professional looking for a new challenge, or somewhere in between, there is a place for you on our team.

At CISA, you will have the opportunity to work with some of the most talented and dedicated professionals in the field. You will have access to innovative technology and resources, and the support you need to succeed. We truly believe in putting our people first.  I believe when you join our team you are entrusting us with a portion of your career, and that’s not a responsibility we take lightly.

We are proud of the work we do, and we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive team that reflects the communities we serve. We believe that diversity of perspectives and experiences makes us stronger and more effective in our mission to protect our nation's critical infrastructure.

If you're passionate about our mission and public service, we want to hear from you. We are always looking for talented individuals with a wide range of skills and backgrounds.

Whether you're a cybersecurity expert, an emergency management professional, a human capital or financial professional, or just someone who is committed to public service, we have many opportunities for you to serve at CISA. We offer competitive salaries, flexible schedules, and opportunities for career advancement.

Thank you to all the public servants who work tirelessly every day and night to protect our great nation—both those who are in the spotlight as well as those behind the scenes.
