Gattoni, Brian R.

Cybersecurity is a growing landscape, in terms of careers and conflict. Federal agencies and private companies are attempting to hire as many qualified cyber professionals as they can to meet the demand of securing this new domain. Veterans are steadily leaving the military for civilian life. Hiring managers need to find qualified employees and veterans need to find post-military employment, but there is no clear path to connect the potential supply with the actual demand. This thesis researches modern developments in security concepts for forward deployed military personnel and connects those concepts to cybersecurity. A survey of the available jobs in cybersecurity creates another layer of traceability followed by identification of related technical skills identified as potential gaps for potential hires. The gaps help identify available sources of training and certification that can help the veterans fill the gaps. The end result is a matrix that identifies that specific security concepts of perimeter defense for forward operating bases and combat outposts do correlate to cybersecurity roles and that the technical skills required are fully covered by existing training. A roadmap is discussed to synchronize federal efforts around a training program to incorporate the findings into existing recruiting efforts.
