Could veterans be the answer to the cyber skills shortage problem?

45% of businesses claim to have a shortage of cyber security skills and 67% of cyber security professionals say they’re too busy with their jobs to keep up with skills development and training.

And yet there is an obvious and massively untapped resource – veterans – of which only 4% are working in tech and cyber.

TEISS speaks with Peter Connolly, CEO of TechVets, on why veterans are the perfect candidates to solve the cyber security skills shortage problem.
