Veterans, their spouses and college students are strong candidates to move into these jobs. Guests at a cybersecurity jobs event received that message with a unified voice from Harry Coker Jr., the White House National Cyber Director, and from community college officials, private employers, Fort Liberty officials and veterans advocacy organizations on Wednesday at Fayetteville Technical Community College.

Coker, who started in the job in December, is a military veteran from a family of veterans. He served in senior roles in the Central Intelligence Agency; as executive director of the National Security Agency; and a Navy officer.

“I know what it means to be a part of the military family, while in uniform,” said Coker in his remarks at the Tony Rand Student Center. “But I also know what it means to continue protecting our nation when we take off those uniforms, and it’s time for the next mission.” 

Cybersecurity is important to national security, Coker said. We have become reliant on a “digital backbone” that affects everything from power, gas and the water coming into our homes; to the systems that keep roads, airports, hospitals, schools and businesses up and running, he said.

“With this connectivity and dependency comes the threat of an attack on that digital foundation,” he said.
