In this roundtable conversation, veterans of the United States Armed Forces discuss working in cybersecurity after serving.

Cybersecurity is a rapidly growing and in-demand field that offers a multitude of opportunities for armed forces veterans. The skills and qualities that veterans develop during their service make them ideally suited for success in cybersecurity careers.

Veterans possess a strong work ethic, discipline, and attention to detail, which are essential for identifying and mitigating cyber threats. Their experience in following protocols and procedures translates well to cybersecurity practices, where adherence to security guidelines is crucial. Additionally, veterans have a proven ability to work effectively as part of a team, a critical skill in cybersecurity operations where collaboration is paramount.
