Veterans: Launch a New Cybersecurity Career
Did you know that cybersecurity professionals report an average salary of $116,000? That’s nearly three times the national average. The demand for cybersecurity experts is growing 12 times faster than the current U.S. job market, making cybersecurity one of the most highly sought-after careers in the country.
Military Veterans, who served and protected the nation, are now well positioned to transition into these much needed cybersecurity jobs. To help Veterans enter this rewarding career field, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provides Cybersecurity Training and Education for Veterans: A user guide for those who formerly served in the U.S. Armed Forces. This guide includes a number of tools and resources to help Veterans begin a cybersecurity career including free online training, information on cybersecurity-related degree programs and information on scholarships.
