In a world where cyber attacks threaten to invade American shores at any time, from any direction, the Department of Homeland Security is now considering how to build a “digital militia” to defend the U.S. at a moment’s notice.

A cyber skills task force commissioned by DHS has recommended the government form a reserve army of cyber specialists from across government, industry and academia to address cyber emergencies.

The primary recommendation of the study was to form a “cyber reserve to insure that cyber professionals were within easy reach in case they were needed.” These “digital minutemen,” just like their namesake, would be ready at a minute’s notice to respond to any threat to the nation’s digital infrastructure.
