Stories about Cyber Security, hacking and data breeches are constantly in the headlines. This creates huge demand. According to the CyberSecurity Business Report there are expected to be 3.5 million jobs by 2021. The cyber crime epidemic is expected to triple the number of open positions over the next five years.
So why are so many veterans choosing Tampa? This is where MacDill Air Force Base is located, home of Central Command. We have many Fortune 500 companies here, all scrambling to hire certified veterans. We simply do not have enough veterans to meet this demand. According to CyberSeek’s heat map, there are almost 4,000 job openings just in the Tampa / St. Petersburg job market. Just to give you an idea, that is more than entire states like South Carolina or Wisconsin.
According to Monster.com, cyber security may be the best field for veterans right now. Veterans already come in with basic skills for this field. They make an easier transition because they already understand “defense of depth, redundant systems and active defense” which makes them especially suited for these jobs, but there is more:
There is a regulation called DOD 8570. For any company that deals with the government and that will have access to sensitive government data, they must have people with the certifications required to their position. This is a legal requirement. Many of these positions also require a security clearance, something veterans often have. Again, this means the supply of qualified people is smaller compared to the demand. This means better pay and more opportunities for growth.
