Helping Our Nation’s Heroes



VetSec is where veterans go to find a world-class community that is here to help them find meaningful employment in cybersecurity. Our vision is to create a world where no veteran pursuing a career in cybersecurity goes unemployed. We do this, first and foremost, by creating a community welcoming all veterans and transitioning military. Second, we partner with world-class training providers to help with low or no-cost training for our members. Finally, we couple that with events to assist in hiring those that have served, like conference participation and our own virtual conference, VetSecCon.

We are a home for those who served – those who are transitioning into or wanting to upskill into cybersecurity. We offer a community of like-minded veterans and a bridge to transition from the military into meaningful employment, with resources and guidance along the way.

From Nuclear Technician to Cybersecurity VP

Before discovering VetSec, our member served as a nuclear power technician in the United States Navy, equipped with formal education in IT and cybersecurity but lacking practical experience and clear guidance for the impending transition to civilian life. The myriad of unknowns from resumes to specific career paths in cybersecurity presented daunting obstacles. Yet, the turning point came upon a simple web search leading to VetSec, a community-driven haven where hundreds of members eagerly offer support to one another.

From Air Force Intelligence to Security Researcher​

This individual served four years in the United States Air Force, working in various non-technical and semi-technical roles. With an impending transition out of the Air Force and a significant technical skills gap identified, the journey to a cybersecurity career seemed fraught with uncertainties. The discovery of VetSec marked the beginning of a transformative journey.
