In the United States, October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Established by the National Cyber Security Division within the Department of Homeland Security and the nonprofit National Cyber Security Alliance, it raises awareness about the importance of cyber security. There is no doubt that our society has become increasingly reliant on technology to perform many kinds of tasks, from navigation to mobile banking to even robotic surgery. Many career paths now focus on science, technology, mathematics, and engineering (STEM), which can directly impact advances in the field of cyber security. Recent legislation has made it possible for those people wishing to immigrate to the United States to potentially seek asylum through STEM education.
The Immigration Driving Entrepreneurship in America (IDEA) Act allows individuals receiving advanced degrees in the STEM fields from acclaimed American universities to seek green cards. It grants green cards to entrepreneurs with a certain amount of venture capital funds who agree to open their start-up businesses in the United States or who can show that their company has created a minimum of 10 new jobs for American workers.
It amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to establish a priority worker immigrant visa for a foreign national who has the following qualifying conditions:
The primary mission of the IDEA Act is to:
Our nation’s security is at the forefront of many political agendas. Advances in technology over the past decade have helped increase our country’s cyber security. Many people from other countries have valuable experience in the tech industry. The IDEA Act can help an immigrant with a STEM degree to seek a Green Card.
