SUBJ:  CREATION OF NEW CYBER MISSION SPECIALIST RATING (CMS) AND
CORRESPONDING CWO SPECIALTY
1. I am pleased to announce that on 20 January 2022, the Vice 
Commandant approved the establishment of the Cyber Mission 
Specialist rating (CMS) and of a Chief Warrant Officer specialty
(CYBR).
2. Cyberspace is an operational domain continuously evolving while
growing in importance and complexity. Operations in cyberspace
require a professional and skilled workforce (military and
civilian). Competition to recruit, retain, and grow cyber talent is
constant. A dedicated CMS enlisted rating with accessions beginning
at the E-5 paygrade, as is done with the Diver rating and an 
accompanying CYBR specialty, will best provide a trained, 
proficient, and professional workforce to enable and conduct
cyberspace operations.
3. Members of the CMS rating and CYBR specialty will have the
opportunity to serve in a broad range of missions. The Coast
Guard's cyber program plays a critical role operating a secure
cyberspace for the Service, protecting the Marine Transportation
System (MTS) against malicious actors seeking to identify new ways
to exploit cyberspace, and countering adversaries' intent on
disrupting Coast Guard operations or negatively impacting national
interests. Members of the CMS rating and CYBR specialty will
continue to serve in critical positions within CG Cyber Command, US
Cyber Command, DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency
(CISA), Areas, Districts, and Sectors, and elsewhere as required.
4. Additional information including timelines and criteria for
lateral applications and CWO appointments will be announced in
subsequent ALCOAST and ALPSC messages. Questions will be addressed
through a FAQ page on the COMDT (CG-791) CG Portal page at:

5. Any questions related to this message should be directed to the
Office of Cyberspace Forces (CG-791),
HQS-SMB-CG-791-CyberspaceForces@uscg.mil. 
6. RDML Todd C. Wiemers, Assistant Commandant for Capability
(CG-7), sends.
7. Internet release is authorized.
