    Default The Army Hiring Cybersecurity Experts as Officers

    As a pilot program, it makes one wonder how they will determine what expertise it takes to be given what rank. This is similar to programs already in existence to get medical doctors, lawyers, and chaplains.
    The Army will start on a small scale with the cyber direct commissioning pilot, Frost said. The service has yet to determine exactly what expertise it will seek from civilian experts. Software design and code writing could be among the skills that the Army wants in the experts it recruits.
    “You have to look at what type of skill set are you looking for from private industry that you may not be producing internally in the Army,” she said.
    The Army also will have to determine whether there is a desire in the private sector to serve in the military, Frost said.

    Hire them as Civilian Technicians like they did in WWII. Put them in uniform with distinctive insignia. Give them a high GS rating for incentive. As an Officer including Warrant Officers they would be in the chain of command unqualified to command or lead. They could be on a General Staff.
