Expressing the sense of the Senate that the Secretary of Defense should consider establishing an award program for the cyber community of the Department of Defense.

establishing an award program for employees of the Department of Defense who carry out the cyber missions or functions of the Department of Defense;
all award options under law or policy, including compensation, time off, and status awards;
awards based upon operational impact and meritorious service;
providing the largest possible opportunity for such members or employees to earn such rewards without regard to type of position, grade, years of service, experience or past performance;
individual and organization rewards; and
other factors, as the Secretary considers appropriate, that would reward and provide incentive to cyber personnel or organizations.
