As we reflect on U.S. Veterans Day, our thoughts often turn to the difficult transition that many military veterans face as they move into the civilian workforce. Many veterans have a challenging time envisioning how their military skills transfer to civilian jobs, and many find the job-search process hard to navigate.
At the same time, we face a huge talent gap in the cybersecurity industry. Some analyst firms predict a shortage of millions of employees by 2020. In fact, Cybersecurity Ventures, in its 2017 jobs report, predicts 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs by 2021, with growing cybercrime leading to a tripling of job openings in the next five years.
