Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Nearly 200,000 military servicemembers separate from the armed forces of the United States each year. Many of those members desire a career in technology, specifically in cybersecurity. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of individuals employed within the cybersecurity sector is slated to grow by 31% between 2019 and 2029, far exceeding the average for all occupations. Still, due to the stigmas around military veterans and mental health, and poor support from the government to educate servicemembers on how to establish a new career, veterans are underemployed, underpaid, and some that made the sacrifice are even homeless.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

VetSec aims to help transitioning military servicemembers find employment in cybersecurity, and help military veterans currently in cybersecurity upskill to be more successful. We do this through a robust community-based approach of paying it forward to those coming in behind us to the industry and through educational resources donated by our sponsors or purchased through VetSec.
In addition, we aim to educate employers on the benefits that veterans bring to the table, including through the use of the DoD SkillBridge program. We do this through an annual conference addressing the industry and outreach from our Board to industry leaders.

- Military Outreach: Through targeted advertising and working with the Department of Labor and Department of Veterans Affairs, reach more service members that are currently in the service to provide education about the cybersecurity industry, the job outlook, and educational tools they can leverage both while in the service and during/after their transition.

- Employment Resources: Provide resume reviews, interview preparation, and partner with leaders in the cybersecurity industry to list jobs that align closely with skills military servicemembers have or can gain with VetSec learning paths. Send members to industry conferences to help bring awareness to the military and veterans and to VetSec as an organization.

- Industry Awareness: Conduct targeted outreach to cybersecurity leaders to educate them on the benefits that veterans bring to the table and the resources that companies can leverage to bring in more veterans, such as the DoD SkillBridge program. Use VetSecCon, our annual conference, as a way to promote these resources.

- Educational Resources: Partner with leaders in education in the cybersecurity and IT industries to provide low/no-cost educational resources to members. Develop learning paths, certified by VetSec, that consolidate those resources into a path to employment in the cyber subdomain of the member's choice.

We are an all-volunteer organization with an operational Board of Directors, limited only by our free time. All of us are current or previous members of the military with a close understanding of the difficulties faced by the community we are trying to serve.

We average 200 new members each month, and are working with the Department of Labor to raise awareness of VetSec into the Transition Assistance Program. We currently have 9 continuing partners who provide strategic collaboration and training discounts and vouchers to our members. We are conducting resume reviews and interview preparation on an as-requested basis and plan on launching our jobs board by the end of 2021.
