A common thread in the issue of U.S. cybersecurity today is the need for talent. Everyone—including industry and government—is struggling to keep up.

Timothy Cochrane and the team at American Corporate Partners (ACP) have developed a secret sauce to help combat the shortage of cybersecurity workers. And they have the stats to back it up.

Founded in 2008, ACP is a national nonprofit assisting post-9/11 veterans in their transition from the military to the civilian workforce. ACP focuses on mentoring, career counseling and professional networking.

Nobody lists “leader” as a job title, quips Zachary Barclift. While seven years in the Marine Corps made him one, the designation just wasn’t cutting it for his search at securing the perfect job.

Team Rubicon is an organization helping veterans help more people. It offers former troops who have a desire to continue serving others a chance to use their unique skill sets during disaster response scenarios. The veterans are teamed with medical personnel and deployed to areas worldwide that are experiencing crises. Response events can be reactive, responding to an immediate, devastating emergency, or proactive in areas with ongoing problems.
