News reports abound on the shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals and the potential consequences this can have for the security of the US and our way of life.

The Wounded Warrior Cyber Combat Academy is a unique approach to addressing this issue. This effort recruits returning war-injured veterans and trains them on IT secuirty skills so they can join the workforce and help defend the US from cyber-attack.

This Tuesday, October 15th at 6pm EST, we welcome Mr. Jim Wiggins, Executive Director of the Federal IT Security Institute and leader of the Wounded Warrior Cyber Combat Academy to learn about this effort and how it benefits our returning soldiers by providing them employable skills, our economy by creating a pool of skilled workers to fill US-based jobs, and our nation by increasing the ranks of cyber defenders.
