OPM Eyes 2015 to Finish Cyber Codes for Employee Job Functions; Lucy Antone Comments

US office of personnel managementThe Office of Personnel Management aims to finish its work to label federal employees with codes to identify their cybersecurity functions by the end of 2015, Federal Times reported Friday.

Aaron Boyd writes there are 31 specialty areas under the codes that are derived from the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education and other stakeholders.

Lucy Antone, human capital strategist at the OPM, cited specific application of the codes within the Interior Department when an agency makes hiring decisions, according to the report.

“One of the ones that came up was Park Ranger. However, there are rangers tasked with ensuring that the critical infrastructure around the nation’s parks and monuments are secure, including the related networks,” she told Federal Times.

OPM started to require agencies to code every position within their organization in July, Boyd reports.
