“ECCU is dedicated to equipping our veteran community to become heroes and warriors in the battle for Cyber Security.”

-Lata Bavisi (President, ECCU)

To honor our veterans and support them for the struggles they faced in defending the nation, ECCU extends the offer of a zero-cost application (application fee waived) for veterans. ECCU recognizes the challenges that veterans face post-duty and takes an active step to encourage and motivate veterans to join an in-demand career that is suited to a veteran’s critical-thinking ability.

Veterans are ideal candidates for this career field. Discipline, ethics, and integrity characterize military service. This experience and these qualities will uniquely qualify those who served to be protectors and defenders of cyberspace and organizational assets.

Join fellow future cybersecurity leaders in studying ethical hacking, forensic investigation, penetration testing, secure programming, incident handling, cyber leadership, and much more.
