Milton Security Awarded Authorized Skillbridge Organization Status

Helping Service Members transition into a Cyber Security career during their last 180 days of Active Duty, Milton Security provides first-hand, on the job training in the InfoSec industry at no cost to Service Members or the U.S. government.

Milton Security, a leading provider of Threat Hunting as a Service, XDR & MDR (MxDR) SOC Services, announced today that it has been awarded the status of Authorised SkillBridge Organisation by the United States Department of Defense. Each year over 200,000 Service members transition out of the military. The SkillBridge program matches Active Duty Service Members with industry leaders to provide valuable civilian work experience during their transition from the military.

Milton Security is an industry leader in Infosec and network security. For Service Members who are looking to transition into a civilian career, the DoD SkillBridge program allows up to 180 days of specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships during the final months of Active Duty. For those members looking to move into a career in cyber security, Milton Security is now an authorised organisation to provide that training.

“Milton Security has had a heart for military service, since our founding,” said Ethan Coulter, President of Milton Security. “It is a privilege to be able to give back and train our Service Members after they have given so much to protect our freedoms. Transitioning to civilian life is difficult, and if we can ensure proper training, skill development, and a rewarding career path for those currently in uniform, we are honored to do so.”

At no cost to the service member or the U.S. government, the SkillBridge program allows service members to receive their military compensation and benefits while they gain valuable training and work experience from industry partners. As of February, 25th, 2021, Milton Security is an official Authorized SkillBridge Organisation offering a 121-150 day hybrid internship program.

“As a Service Disabled, Veteran Owned business, we are proud to be awarded this status by the DoD,” said Milton Security CEO James McMurry, a Service-Disabled Veteran of the United States Coast Guard. “We know what it’s like to transition out of service into the civilian world, so being able to provide valuable training for our service members is one way we continue to give back to our country. So many of our Service Members have incredible talent and Milton Security has the honor of focusing those skills into a career path in the Infosec industry that is rewarding for the service member and valuable to the organisations that hire them.”
