ABOUT CYBERSECURITY

ATO/JFO veterans often find it hard to fit into their new life after returning home from the battlefield. However, their military experience can still be extremely relevant to protecting Ukraine and its citizens even in the civilian setting. After all, Russian aggression goes far beyond the frontlines on the eastern border

Our country’s digital space is under attack each day. And it is in the field of cybersecurity that veterans’ competencies like stress resistance, discipline, and instant reactions offer some invaluable advantages. Cybersecurity professionals are in high demand today, and the occupation will become even more popular and well-paid in the coming years
