FEI Crisis Management – 20 years of crisis management consultation

FEI Crisis Management – Providing the Help You Need, When You Need It Most

No campus wants to imagine the worst case scenario, yet the perception of your preparedness in the wake of a disaster will have a significant impact on your reputation and the continuity of your business.

The ultimate impact of a crisis is determined by how well that crisis was addressed before, during, and after an actual event.

With over 20 years of crisis management consultation, we operate a network of 20 call centers around the country to handle the extremely high volume of calls that an incident will generate. This will relieve the burden that those calls will place on your internal telecommunications system. In addition, we provide a network of trained, experienced on-site responders to assist your team in managing the crisis. In order to ensure the safety of your campus, contact FEI today for a complimentary review of our Crisis Management services.

For more information, please contact Diane Barbieri at (800) 782-1948, Ext. 6525, email at dbarbieri@feinet.com , or visit us at www.feinet.com

Secretary’s Honors Program

The Secretary’s Honors Program (SHP) is a highly competitive, premier program for exceptional recent graduates looking for a career at DHS. Qualified candidates apply for a limited number of slots and are selected based on their academic performance, experience and other criteria.

Those selected for the program will be offered a variety of incentives and enhanced career opportunities including Department rotations, mentorships, focused on-the-job training and inclusion in various professional development programs.

Individuals who possess graduate or undergraduate degrees may apply for the following fellowships within the SHP:

  • Cyber Fellows – a two-year program for recent college graduates designed to develop technically skilled cyber professionals across DHS. Through rotational assignments, participants see how each DHS Component agency collaborates on cyber-related issues and works first-hand on critical issues or incidents in a fast-paced, growing environment. Candidates are encouraged to participate in the Cybersecurity Internship Program prior to applying for the Honors Program.
  • Honors Attorneys – a two-year program designed for highly qualified third-year law students, fourth-year students graduating from four-year programs, combination programs or LL.M. programs immediately after law school, and those applying from judicial clerkships immediately after law school. Candidates will have the opportunity to work at multiple legal offices within the Office of the General Counsel.
