Experts estimate cyber cyber security market will grow from $77 billion in 2015 to $170 billion by 2020. This will happen largely because cyber attacks will cost businesses between $400 to $500 billion a year. Even as cyber security professionals try to combat this epidemic, the odds are stacked against them.

Opportunities in cyber security are growing faster than employers can fill them. As the demand for the cyber security workforce is expected to rise to 6 million globally by 2019, the industry is projecting a shortfall of 1.5 million security professionals. As the Cisco 2014 Annual Security Report warned, even as cyber attacks and data breaches increase each year, there is a global shortage of information security professionals of up to One million professionals in the US alone. Prepare for a career in this fast-growing cyber security space.

The Departments of Labor, Education, and Veteran Affairs are reforming their programs to enable the use of education benefits for apprenticeships:

- The Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) Program is authorized by Congress under Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 31.  It is sometimes referred to as the Chapter 31 program.  The VR&E program assists Veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find and keep suitable jobs.

- Streamlining GI Bill benefits for apprentices. Through a partnership between the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Labor, employers now have a fast-track for their veteran employees to access their GI Bill benefits for registered apprenticeships, helping more than 9,000 veteran apprentices receive the benefits they have earned.

In the model, the traditional Workforce role of “Registered Training Provider” is enhanced with a Workforce Role of “Registered Apprenticeship Provider” ...

Align apprenticeships to pathways for further learning and career advancement:Apprenticeships that embed industry-recognized skills certifications or reward workplace learning with college credit provide an affordable educational pathway for those who need to earn while they learn, and apprenticeships linked to pre-apprenticeship programs can help more Americans access this training and get on an early pathway to a good career.

Scale apprenticeship models that work: Across the country, there are pockets of excellence in apprenticeship, but all too often these successful models are unknown in other regions or to other employers. These grants will build from strength and invest in innovations and strategies to scale apprenticeships – including to market the value of apprenticeships, make them more attractive to women and other Americans who have been underrepresented, increase the return on investment for workers and, or build national and regional partnerships to expand apprenticeships.
