The Center for Cyber Safety and Education, the charitable foundation of (ISC)² that specializes in cybersecurity training and certifications, selected Engility Holdings Inc. as its 2018 Partner of the Year for its commitment to create cybersecurity career opportunities for veterans.
Last fall, the Center and Engility partnered to introduce their CyberWarrior® Scholarships to help military veterans transition to post-military cybersecurity careers. The scholarships are awarded twice a year to military veterans honorably discharged from one of the five branches of the military or those currently serving as active members in the National Guard or Reserves. They include everything recipients need to prepare for cybersecurity careers including certification training classes, textbooks, materials and exam vouchers for the (ISC)2® certification of their choice. At the end of the training, recipients are given opportunities to secure jobs such as security analyst, security engineer, security auditor and security architect.
The Center will honor Engility at an awards ceremony during the 2018 (ISC)2 Security Congress.
