The Fortinet FortiVet program is working to bridge the gap between the supply of veterans looking for post-service work and the need for qualified professionals across the cybersecurity industry.
On Wednesday, November, 1st, Fortinet held a critical panel discussion at The Summit, entitled “Winning the Security Battle for Your Enterprise Requires a New Approach.”
Over the last three years, it has been my privilege to be one of the first civilian interview experiences that candidates in our Veterans program go through. For those of you that do not know, Fortinet runs the top Veterans employment program by any pure play security vendor bar none.
We know from experience that former military personnel often develop into outstanding cybersecurity professionals. With this in mind, we initiated the FortiVets program in 2013 with a charter to recruit and assist veterans seeking to make the transition to a post-service career in cybersecurity.
