How Veterans Can Help Protect the Nation’s Cyber Space
America owes a debt to veterans and recognizes they represent a unique pool of candidates due to their proven talent and commitment to public service. DHS can assist in building the nation’s cyber workforce pipeline, and support our veterans at the same time, by enhancing opportunities for veterans to be educated and hired in mission-critical cybersecurity jobs.
For veterans who have experience in cybersecurity, DHS offers exciting and dynamic careers in cybersecurity and the opportunity to be part of a world class cyber workforce. Information on cybersecurity careers at DHS can be found at http://www.dhs.gov/join-dhs-cybersecurity or at www.usajobs.gov (keyword: cyber).
For veterans who are looking to gain knowledge and education in cybersecurity, there are cybersecurity programs across the country that have been approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for use of various veteran educational benefits. For more information on cybersecurity education, visit The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies at http://niccs.us-cert.gov/home/veterans.
VA offers various educational benefits that veterans may use to obtain a Cyber Security degree or certificate. Visit www.gibill.va.gov to learn more about available educational benefits provided through the VA.
