SkillsBuild initiative from IBM will train veterans in cybersecurity

SkillsBuild initiative from IBM will train veterans in cybersecurity

People who return from the military find it difficult to catch up with civilian life. It is difficult for the veterans to explain their experience to the employers to secure a job. HRD Asia has reported that veterans in Australian will soon be trained in cybersecurity, and they will be joining the digital frontline. SkillBuild initiative from IBM, along with Soldier On, will be offering the opportunity to learn cybersecurity to almost 3000 veterans. Tech giant IBM has launched a free online learning platform to help the defense personnel acquire skills in data management, computer security, web development, and cloud administration.

During the launch of the initiative, Scott Morrison, the prime minister of Australia, stated that SkillsBuild would be responsible for connecting veterans to jobs and workplaces. Morrison further added that IBM's skills investment in Australia would provide veterans with the necessary skills to succeed in the digital economy. The federal government is looking forward to investing $1bn into this initiative. The move comes as a savior for Australia's economy, and SkillsBuild wants to address the digital gap. Managing director of IBM Australia and New Zealand, Katrina Troughton stated that Reskilling is important for the country's future, and digital literacy must be promoted.
