Cyber Security for Military Affiliates

Cyber Security for Military Affiliates

Phase2 Advantage supports the military affiliate community, and actively encourages its members to pursue careers in cyber security. Our support of this community — Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Retired or Veteran — is genuine. Our company does not take this position because it is trendy, fashionable, or a great public relations opportunity for marketing and sales. We hold firmly to the belief that when it comes to supporting our brothers and sisters in uniform, it is an absolute obligation.

All cyber certification courses offered by Phase2 Advantage provide a high level of value for students. However, there are specific courses are particularly relevant to the Military Affiliate Community, as they support training requirements for the DOD 8570 (Baseline Certifications for Information Assurance). If you are Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Retired or a Military Veteran from any branch of service, we invite you to explore cyber security as a career choice.  With over 300,000 job vacancies waiting to be filled by qualified applicants in the US alone, the opportunities for a great future are virtually endless.

Phase2 Advantage Believes in the Military Affiliate Community's Potential

White Box_Gold Star

From the Phase2 Founder: Your military experience has made you a special breed apart from your counterparts. Your experience has prepared you to face unforeseen challenges, overcome insurmountable odds, and demonstrate leadership in a wide variety of environments. Your dedication to training, ability to accept responsibility, and unrelenting commitment to achieving objectives demonstrates the strength of your character.

Despite extraordinary risk, you choose to serve your country with distinction, realizing the potential reward for your patriotism may ultimately be the sacrifice of your life. It will always be a part of you; it will shape your mindset, perceptions, and responses forever. Your military experience has also created for you a less noticeable benefit: it has made you an ideal candidate for a career in cyber security.

It is crucial to understand that despite the obstacles – overcoming commonly held myths and the natural apprehension of acclimating to a highly technological environment – you have both the capacity and the ability to pursue a cyber security path and achieve success.

More importantly, it is imperative to believe you have the power to do so. Given the imposed challenges of modern culture, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. When you believe you have the power to succeed in this technological realm, you’re actually affirming a sense of control that cannot be taken away from you. The power over one’s mindset is never taken away; it is always relinquished freely.

You don’t need to be told that twice. Your experience proves that every time you put on a uniform and prepare your mindset for battle in defense of America’s freedoms.

The thing that differentiates you from the pack is not your creativity, brilliance, or pedigree. What makes you inherently different is your refusal to relinquish your power to succeed and renounce your dreams. When other people quit in the face of challenges, you don’t.

Your country is calling you again. Seize the moment, act with intentionality, and conquer the challenge of cyber security certification training as you’ve conquered other challenges in your military past: successfully.
