‘Remarkable’ Veterans Should Be Your Next Tech Hires

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 25 maggio 2019

On Memorial Day we honor and remember those who died in military service to this country. And as we continue to celebrate Military Appreciation Month, now is also a good time to honor and remember the 250,000 veterans who transition out of the military every year. Almost 80% of those veterans do not have jobs waiting after completing their service.
Today Infosec, the leading provider of IT security education and workforce security awareness training, salutes student veterans who recently passed the first Infosec Security+ course offered through the VetsInTech (VIT) organization. Impressively, 100% of the class passed the course on the first attempt, which has been hailed as an ‘extraordinary’ accomplishment.VetsInTech supports veterans and their spouses by helping them train and find jobs in the tech field. Its programs guide veterans through three key areas — education, employment and entrepreneurship. VIT brings together resources, training and top tech corporations seeking to hire veterans. Headquartered in San Francisco, VIT has grown to 12 veteran-led chapters across the U.S. since its beginning in 2012.Infosec is partnering with VIT to provide its Security+ Certification Training and Boot Camp. Security+ teaches students information security theory, as well as how to configure and operate many different technical security controls. The course includes hands-on exercises to help students learn by doing.VIT’s cybersecurity program is made possible through a $1 million gift from Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist and Craig Newmark Philanthropies. Two more Infosec Security+ courses are scheduled for VetsInTech. The next course in June will be held in San Diego, followed by an August session in Colorado Springs.
